Maglieaux’s Riverfront Restaurant has supported several community events since it first opened in Natchitoches, but their most recent fundraiser was special for owners John and Kathy Richmond.
Maglieaux’s held a “Give Back” fundraiser for three days in March. All the profits went toward a donation to Renee’s Dance Studio. The Richmonds have known Studio owner Renee Oates through the years and wanted to support the arts at a young age. Three employees at the restaurant teach dance at the Studio.
This inaugural event was a huge success and the proceeds will help offset expenses when the 40-girl team travels to the National Championships in Oklahoma in July. John presented a check to Renee and a few of her dancers and their mothers March 30.
The girls at Renee’s placed first overall at Regionals and waited tables during the fundraiser to help raise funds. A third of the donation check was tips the girls got from their tables. They took some time out of their spring break to serve the community for a good cause.
“It’s all about being a part of your community,” said John.
