Shreveport, LA, April 22, 2015
Shreveport’s finest showed up in style to this year's annual Chocolate & Champagne Affair at Diamond Jacks Casino this past weekend. It was an evening of sweets and fanfare with over 300 people in attendance to raise funds for Easter Seals Louisiana's disability services throughout the state. Thanks to the considerable efforts of event sponsors KMSS Fox 33 and e'Loquince the event was a complete success, raising over $20,000.
This year Easter Seals Louisiana was happy to honor Hedy Hebert with the our Lily Award, for her unwavering dedication to those with special needs in her community. Hebert spoke passionately on the need for everyone to volunteer in their communities to make life more accessible and enjoyable to those living with disabilities.
Committee members for the event included Angela Brakeville, Debbie Coleman, Kelli Dauphin, Chris Keenan, Patti Pernici, Sandy Putman, Patti Richter, and Libba Thompson.
Chocolate vendors included The Wyndham Garden Inn, The Wooden Spoon, The Chocolate Crocodile, Buttercups Cupcakes, Cake Bites by Jamee, So Good Bakery, Zebra Cupcakes, Crystal Stairs, Ralph & Kacoos and Cher's Pound Cakes.
