"Our mission sustains our legacy of caring, teaching, learning and work for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities."
This year marks the 34th Annual Taste of Shreveport-Bossier, one of the area’s largest fundraisers, which benefits the residents and Day Program participants of Holy Angels Residential Facility. At $50 per ticket, “The Taste” attracts over 1,500 guests and brings together premiere chefs from over 20 local restaurants to create a sensational culinary experience that is renowned throughout the community. The evening also boasts some of the area’s finest music and art from both the creative and talented members of our region and from Holy Angels’ extraordinary residents, whose artwork is truly exceptional and inimitable. The event will be held on Friday, November 6, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Bossier Civic Center, located at 620 Benton Road in Bossier City, LA. Guests are invited to join the families and friends of Holy Angels as we celebrate 34 years of love for art, food, wine, and Holy Angels!
In addition to the delicious dishes from more than 20 vendors, there will be a silent auction coordinated by this year’s Taste Auction Chairman, Mrs. Kevin Driscoll. The Angel Auction will showcase over 50 pieces of artwork created by Holy Angels’ residents and AngelWorks Day Program participants in addition to donated artwork from regional artists. The auction items include original paintings, jewelry, and ceramics. The auction also features a variety of wonderful trips, gifts and products generously donated by local vendors and shops.
All auction and event proceeds benefit Holy Angels with approximately 85 cents of every dollar going directly toward resident care. Please consider showing your support by donating an auction item or piece of artwork to our 34th Anniversary of A Taste of Shreveport-Bossier. For questions, please contact Sharon Driscoll, Taste Auction Chairman at 318.517.7015 or SDRISCO@aol.com. To accompany the evening’s festivities, there is also live music provided by the A.J. and the Two Tone Blues Band, and the Master of Ceremonies will be Mr. David Merrick. The Holy Angels’ Choir will also be performing.
Participation in the 34th Anniversary of A Taste of Shreveport-Bossier through corporate sponsorship and the artist auction donation adds tremendous value to our community and assists in providing for our 180 deserving residents. Holy Angels, established in 1965 by Bishop Charles P. Greco and the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows, is an independent, residential training facility focused on sustaining our legacy of care for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities in our community.
