Benefiting the American Red Cross, patient Camp Bon Coeur and ASDD


Marksville, LA – Paragon Casino Resort is proud to host the 10th annual La Cuisine de la Louisiane, a culinary fundraiser to be held in the Mari Showroom on Sunday, July 28, 5:30-7:30 p.m. This year’s event will serve as a major fundraiser for the American Red Cross of Central Louisiana in Alexandria, Camp Bon Coeur in Lafayette, and the Avoyelles Society for the Developmentally Disabled in Marksville. A $35 ticket donation, 100 percent of which directly benefits the participating non-profits, allows patrons to enjoy a sampling of delectable items prepared by major restaurants throughout the state of Louisiana. The menu at this epicurean feast will include entrees, appetizers, soups, salads and desserts. Funds from the event will allow these organizations to continuously improve the quality of their programs.

Table samples will be provided for every guest at the event and will include heart healthy snacks. Beverage vendors will also participate by providing a variety of wine, coffee, and other beverage products. Participating restaurants will be announced at a future date. For all involved, it will be an evening full of fun, food and flair.  Live entertainment will be provided. A silent auction will also be held as an additional fundraiser for each of the participating non-profit organizations.

“Paragon Casino Resort is dedicated to being a supportive member of the community,” said Peter Fordham, General Manager of Paragon Casino Resort. “By hosting La Cuisine de la Louisiane, we are providing a fundraising opportunity for three worthwhile non-profit organizations that provide valuable services to our community.”
