The Natchitoches Event’s Center was abuzz Saturday night, May 18, as the 32nd Annual Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Foundation hosted their gala. The theme for this years festivities was a “Rockin’ Luau.” Attendees donned their best beach attire while they sipped on Mai Tais and enjoyed an Elvis impersonator and Live 80 Band.
The delectable Polynesian style buffet was a huge hit with the supporters of the gala and it had the guests coming back for more.
NRMC CEO Kirk Soileau was on hand to greet the crowd and thank them for their unwavering support of the hospital. Tom Matuschka, Vice President of Business Development and Executive Director of the NRMC Foundation, addressed the supporters and outlined the massive support and work that make this event the success that it continues to be year after year.
The gala is held every May and has become a staple of the social landscape of Natchitoches. The Natchitoches Regional Medical Center is a community-oriented company and it was evident with the Gala being so heavily supported throughout Natchitoches and the surrounding areas.
The Gala’s fund raising efforts support the Foundation’s philanthropic work and key initiatives including community wellness and nursing and allied health scholarships.
