Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center to host 20s-themed bash for community

Grab a glass of giggle water and get ready to Charleston the night away at The Gala Goes Gatsby, hosted by Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center. This exciting affair will be held on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at the Houma – Terrebonne Civic Center. Fellas and flappers dressed to the nines can sip on libations popular during the 20s while helping those in the community impacted by cancer.

Throughout the event, local patients and survivors of the Cancer Center will share mission moments to show guests the impact of their support. All proceeds from the event will be used to further key support services such as early detection, patient navigation and survivorship programs within the Houma community.

“Our mission at the Cancer Center is to improve survivorship and lessen the burden of cancer,” said Ethan Bush, vice president and chief development officer at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. “Community events such as The Gala Goes Gatsby allow us to make our mission a reality by not only raising funds but also showing the Houma community what their generosity provides through mission moments.”

The event will also host a silent auction where guests can bid on items Jay Gatsby would be jealous of.

So, if you want to show your pals who’s the cat’s meow, be sure to shimmy on down to The Gala Goes Gatsby on Thursday, Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m.! Hosted at the Houma – Terrebonne Civic Center, the event is sure to be a tremendous shindig.
