Dear Friend of Holy Angels,

We invite you to be a part of TASTE 2018! The 37th Annual TASTE: A Festival of Shreveport-Bossier Food and Art is set for Thursday, November 1, 2018! The event will be held at the Bossier Civic Center from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. More than 1,500 community members, corporate sponsors, local artists and vendors will join together on this very special night in support of Holy Angels. We invite you to join the clients, families and friends of Holy Angels.

We are reaching out to you and other community artists and businesses, asking that you allow us to showcase your beautiful work as part of our Angel Auction, a favorite among TASTE attendees! Proceeds directly benefit the individuals with disabilities served by Holy Angels. Auction items include original paintings, jewelry, and products created by our Angel Artists, along with all forms of original art from local artists and collectors. We also feature wonderful trips, experiences, gifts and products generously donated by local vendors and shops. We kindly request that auction items have a value of at least $250.00. In appreciation of your generous donation, we will provide complimentary tickets and recognition at the event!

Your presence and participation in TASTE will add tremendous value to our community and assist in providing for our deserving residents and day program participants who live in the community. Holy Angels is an independent training facility focused on sustaining our legacy of care and empowerment for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder, in our community. We are striving to meet the ever changing needs of these individuals through assessment, job readiness training, employment, day program services, and residential care.

Please consider showing your support by donating an auction item or piece of artwork to the TASTE Angel Auction. If you would like to submit an item, please complete our online form below or email mricou@laholyangels.org at your earliest convenience. One of our auction committee members will be in touch to offer to assist you in any way or to schedule a pick up. Auction items may also be dropped off at the Holy Angels Administration Building by September 28, 2018.
