Loyola artists use their talents for good

Parents, art lovers and LightHouse supporters packed The Perfect Pair Sunday to bid on artwork by Loyola and LightHouse students.
The event was the brainchild of Loyola Senior and Art Club president Megan Mitton. Club members helped the LightHouse kids paint their pieces over the summer before compiling the collection for the sale.
By the end of the show, nearly everything was sold! Thank you and congratulations to the students for sharing their talent and all their hard work!
Sponsor a duck, help a child
A rubber duck could win you $10,000, and make a big difference in the lives of our LightHouse children.
The Rotary Club of Bossier City is holding its first annual Marshall Johnny Wyatt Memorial Duck Race on March 12. Ducks are $10 each and proceeds from the event will benefit Volunteers of America and the Gingerbread House.
Ducks will be on sale from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and March 5 at the Louisiana Boardwalk. They are also available from all members of the Bossier Rotary. Read more...
