Signature Fundraising Event

When Cancer Services joined forces with Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center earlier this year, it offered expanded opportunities to serve more patients and make the most efficient use of generous donor dollars. With a true spirit of supporting those impacted by cancer, the two organizations are launching a brand-new community bash to raise funds together.

The Gala Goes Gatsby was Thursday, September 13, 2018 at L’Auberge Casino and Hotel Baton Rouge

Thank you to all of our generous donors, restaurants, chefs and everyone who came together to make this inaugural event so memorable! Stay tuned for 2019!
