Pre-Party Fundraising Events

Volunteers Needed!

Here you'll see events scheduled in 2016 and 2017 which will help us pay for our week long celebration between June 30th and July 4th, 2018. Right now these are still in the planning stages. We need the support of individuals and organizations to make these events happen. If any of these events get your creative juices flowing, please click the blue button to submit your suggestions or volunteer!

We are also seeking volunteers to chair committees for the 2018 celebration. Please visit our Events Page for a listing of the ideas that have surfaced. Each of the events listed cannot happen without a wide range of talented and committed folks pitching in! If you are unsure where you're interested in helping, please reach out! Our Volunteer Coordinator can help you find a home.

Not Your Momma's Bingo Game!!    I want to help with this!

Co-chairs: Michelle Niedner & Lori Lewis

Date: Jan 1, 2018 6pm – 10pm
Where: American Legion, 420 Kelley Lane

The Louisiana Bicentennial Committee will be hosting a Music Bingo Night. You won't want to miss this!

Join us on January 1st for some great music with a twist! Grab a bunch of your friends—you are bound to have a fantastic time!

Music Bingo is just like regular bingo but much more exciting—there are no boring numbers called—you will only hear music getting played over the loudspeakers!

The fee is $20 per person in advance and $25 at the door. That price includes all you can drink beer on tap (must be 21 to consume alcohol). You may bring in snacks and food for your table. Great prizes will be awarded to the winner of each game.

Proceeds will go to help fund the July 2018 party.

Victorian Christmas Home Tour    I want to help with this!

Co-chairs: Michelle Niedner & Lori Lewis

Date: December 2, 2017 12pm – 4pm

The Louisiana Bicentennial Committee will be hosting a Victorian Christmas Home Tour. Visitors won't want to miss this incredible opportunity to glimpse inside Louisiana's most beautiful and historic homes during this festive time of year.

We are looking for home-owners who are willing to open their home during this event. If you enjoy showing off your holiday decorating talent, this event is for you! Unlike other home tours, this event is specifically marketed to holiday decorations and will not require home owners to open up their private spaces. The committee will provide home-sitters if you are unavailable that evening. We will also provide boot covers or floor protectors if the weather is nasty. We are hoping for 6 to 10 homes to feature on the tour. Please contact Michelle or Lori right away to be featured in this festive event!

We are also in need of those willing to home-sit if homeowners do not wish to be present. Other duties may include directing guests or helping to set up signage.

Proceeds will go to help fund the July 2018 party.
