'A Grand Affair' Anniversary Gala

Our elegant fundraising gala enters its third year with festive 100th anniversary flair! Taking place at the Horseshoe Riverdome in Bossier City, Louisiana, A Grand Affair will serve as the pinnacle event of a yearlong anniversary celebration at Shriners Children’s Shreveport.

Guests will enjoy a lavish seafood buffet, entertainment by Windstorm, and a silent auction featuring vacations, jewelry, paintings, memorabilia and more!

Bobbi Jo Wright, who as a child was immortalized in the iconic Editorial Without Words photo of a Shriner carrying her as a child, will join us as our featured speaker. Bobbi Jo is widely sought after as a speaker for her thoughtful perspectives on life as a former Shriners Children's patient and the legacy of that famous 1970 photo. It’s a grand affair you won’t want to miss!

Deadline to purchase tickets is September 9. To purchase, visit our gala registration page.
