Gala

Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center is mixing up its signature event a little in an effort to give locals an even greater than good time.

The Cancer Center announced this week that its well-known Ladies Night Out events will now take on a fresh, new look and feel.

The events will now be called The Gala and each rendition of the event will have a different theme.

This year's event is called The Gala Goes Gatsby presented by Louis Mohana Furniture. The event will take locals back almost a century to the 1920s where they will pass a roaring good time.

This year's event will be held on Sept. 19 at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center.

Guests will experience an intimate atmosphere where both men and women will be able to sip on libations from the period, while also dressing in their best from the 1920s. Locals will be asked to mingle in a cocktail party-styled setting and mission moments centered on Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center patients and survivors will be highlighted throughout the evening.

The Gala will highlight a 365 Days of Giving Wall sponsored by Louis Mohana Furniture. Guests are encouraged to purchase a day on the wall for $50 to honor, celebrate or in memory of a loved one.

On the wall, there will be multiple chances to win gift cards to the furniture store, including one day, which will feature a $1,000 gift card.

The Bee's Knees sponsor will be Peoples Drug Store and DJ Rhett is the emcee for the enchanted evening.

The Gatsby Gang Jazz Band will provide music for the event.

“We are excited to showcase a fresh new theme to the tremendous community support of our patients and the Cancer Center with a timeless and fabulous roaring 20’s evening,” said Phyllis Peoples, TGMC President and CEO. “Over the past 12 years, we have raised close to $1 million for patients receiving treatment right here at home. We are proud to be able to offer world-class services to our community so that each patient can continue to live life to its fullest.”

Tickets to the event are $75/person and can be purchased at mbptgmc.org/gala.
