The LSU Health Sciences Foundation hosted its annual fundraising gala, An Evening for Healers, on Aug. 31. In its 12th year, the event has served as a platform to honor and celebrate the Shreveport-Bossier community’s first responders, physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and other health care providers who each played a vital role in saving the lives of patients at Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport (OLHS) while raising mission-critical funding. More than $4 million has been raised for LSU Health Shreveport. – Mark Crawford

The Sixth Annual Catahoula Wine Mixer was hosted on Saturday, Sept. 9, at Windrush Park in the Provenance neighborhood.

Each region had a unique, festivallike atmosphere, serving small plates from local chefs, wine selected by local sommeliers, and entertainment from Victoria Wells, DJ Yoshi and others. – Mark Crawford
