Bow Tie Bash: A CrescentCare Event
Thu, Apr 27, 2017 from 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The Bow Tie Bash is a CrescentCare event that benefits those affected by cancer and HIV in the New Orleans community. Proceeds from the Bow Tie Bash will help our Food for Friends program deliver meals to cancer and HIV clients who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.
The event was inspired by Chet Pourciau, a long-time volunteer for NO/AIDS Task Force, known for his vibrant personality and a love for flashy bow ties. In 2015, Chet passed away after being diagnosed with lymphoma. With the blessing of his partner, Jack Sullivan, we created this event to honor Chet and immortalize his contributions to our mission through raising funds for cancer patients in the Food For Friends program. This year, the event will also celebrate the life of Sister Marcy Romine who passed away unexpectedly on February, 14. Sister Marcy served as Assistant to the CEO of Crescent Care and the New Orleans Aids Task Force.
For 34 years, NO/AIDS Task Force has served those affected by HIV/AIDS in New Orleans community. With our expansion under CrescentCare, we now offer a full range of healthcare options for anyone seeking care. Our Food for Friends program began as a division of NO/AIDS Task Force, delivering over 39,000 meals each year. Now we have expanded that service to cancer patients as well.
