The local chapter of the American Cancer Society held its annual “Seersucker, Sandals and Sundresses” fundraiser Thursday, Aug. 25 at the Natchitoches Events Center. The popular event, unique to Natchitoches and in its eighth year, featured live entertainment from the Cane Mutiny Band and a silent auction. Former NSU Professor, cancer survivor and honorary chairman, Stanley Chaddick was the keynote speaker.
This year’s event is expected to raise $40,000, all of which will stay in the area to help people dealing with cancer. The fundraiser drew 150 people who enjoyed a superb dinner and entertainment while helping create a world with more birthdays.
