14-foot pirogue built, designed for auction

The boat was especially designed and built as an auction item for “A Time to Remember,” a fundraiser that the Bourgeois Family from St. Amant will host (5th year) at the Clarion Inn & Conference Center on Sunday, June 24, from 2-5 p.m.

The event is a dessert social with a silent auction of over 100 items. Along with the great food and wonderful items for auction, Center Stage Performing Arts Academy will feature several musical numbers from their summer musical “Legally Blonde.” 

In addition to the silent auction, they are raffling a 6-night cabin vacation in Cosby, Tennessee, just outside of Gatlinburg. Tickets are $5 per chance or 5 chances for $20. All funds raised at the event will go directly to Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area which serves Ascension Parish.
