TASTE: A Festival of Food and Art

We invite you to one of the area’s largest fundraisers, which benefits the clients and Day Program participants of Holy Angels. TASTE attracts over 1,500 guests and brings together premiere chefs from over 28 local restaurants to create a sensational culinary experience that is renowned throughout the community. The evening also boasts music by WINDSTORM and art from both the creative and talented members of our region and from Holy Angels’ extraordinary clients, whose artwork is truly exceptional and inimitable.

This year marks the 36th Annual Taste: A Festival of Shreveport-Bossier Food and Art. The event is held on Thursday, November 2, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Bossier Civic Center, located at 620 Benton Road in Bossier City, LA. Guests are invited to join the families and friends of Holy Angels as we celebrate 36 years of love for art, food, wine and Holy Angels!

For the first year ever, we will award First Taste to one of the local restaurants represented at TASTE. This people’s choice award will foster some friendly competition, and the winning restaurant will receive $1,000. This year’s local chef ambassador is Blake Jackson with Drake Catering. You won’t want to miss Blake’s live cooking demonstrations at TASTE.

In addition to the delicious dishes from more than 28 vendors, there is a silent auction. The Angel Auction will showcase over 50 pieces of artwork created by Holy Angels’ clients and AngelWorks Day Program participants in addition to donated artwork from regional artists. The auction items include original paintings, jewelry, and ceramics. The auction also features a variety of wonderful trips, gifts and products generously donated by local vendors and shops.

All auction and event proceeds benefit Holy Angels with approximately 84 cents of every dollar going directly toward client care. Please consider showing your support by donating an auction item or piece of artwork to our 36th Anniversary of A Taste of Shreveport-Bossier.

Participation in the 36th Anniversary of A Taste of Shreveport-Bossier through corporate sponsorship and the artist auction donation adds tremendous value to our community and assists in providing for our 180 deserving clients. Holy Angels, established in 1965 by Bishop Charles P. Greco and the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows, is an independent, residential training facility focused on sustaining our legacy of care for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities in our community. Holy Angels strives to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients who range in age from young children to senior citizens.
