(BATON ROUGE, La.) - Heritage Ranch successfully raised $179,000 through their Heritage Gala Friday, Aug. 18 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The Gala welcomed a crowd of over 450+ guests who participated in silent and live auctions, raffle by Cut Fine Jewelry, Kendra Scott Jewelry Pull, Dessert Rodeo, Spin to Win and more. The event was presented by AV Solutions and Burger King.
Food and refreshments were provided by local area restaurants and vendors throughout the event. Live music by Justin McCain Project entertained guests as well. The event was hosted by emcee Kelly Hurtado. Congressman Garrett Graves was in attendance as the special guest.
With the theme of “Stetson’s and Stillettos”, the night consisted of upscale western attire and accents of the “Wild West.” The overall theme of the event acknowledged the effect that the flood had on the Ranch, while also looking forward to the Ranch’s reopening. Money raised from the event will support programming for the youth and families at Heritage Ranch. Donors also provided specific funds to complete construction of the boy’s home and its furnishings.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all those who participated in the Gala, as well as those who send continued support, to make the vision of the Ranch possible! Heritage Ranch would not exist without the spport of the community and the surrounding areas!
