It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly six years since Katrina bore down on New Orleans, leaving unimaginable disaster and entering the record books as one of the five most deadliest hurricanes ever to hit the U.S.

In that time, Make It Right, the organization founded by Brad Pitt to help sustainably rebuild the Lower 9th Ward, has been progressing towards their goal of 150 new homes. Yesterday, it was announced that Hyatt Regency New Orleans would be joining them on that journey with a new fundraising push and $300K for two new homes.

“After Hurricane Katrina, many people said the Lower 9th Ward could not be rebuilt, but the spirit of the Lower Ninth and its residents is vibrant and resilient. Today, the neighborhood is growing and alive with new homes, playgrounds, gardens and block parties,” said Brad Pitt in a statement. “With the help of generous partners like Hyatt, Make It Right will fulfill our goal of building 150 sustainable homes for those in this community who lost everything in the storm.”

To celebrate the re-opening of the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, the hotel is throwing a charity gala called “A Night To Make It Right” with famous faces, major entertainers, philanthropists, and business leaders expected to attend. Brad Pitt will personally host the event.

Look for your invite sometime before March 2012.
