RiverBend Revue Silent Auction
The LSUS Foundation and LSUS Alumni Association had a wonderful time hosting RiverBend Revue 2013 Wednesday, April 24 at the Horseshoe Riverdome in Bossier City, LA. Our own Marcia Calhoun (BGS 2000) and Edie Williams (BGS 1988) were honored as the 2013 Pilots of the Year in a gala entitled On Broadway! The next RiverBend Revue and Auction is scheduled for October 23, 2014.
Both of the 2013 honorees had previously received the Association's Distinguished Alumni Award. Kermit Poling, General Manager of KDAQ and the Red River Radio Network, orchestrated the musical entertainment with help from Shreveport Opera and the RiverBend Revue Band. It was definitely Some Enchanted Evening as we celebrated Marcia and Edie's significant contributions to LSUS and some of their favorite Broadway tunes.
The Silent Auction at RiverBend Revue is hosted and managed by the LSUS Alumni Association. Guests are free to bid while enjoying cocktails, dinner and music. Thanks to our generous community donors and high bidders, the 2013 auction cleared more than $10,000. Since the auction's inception in 2008, we have raised almost $76,000 for scholarships, projects, programs or services at LSUS!
RiverBend Revue tickets typically range in price from $125 individual to a $10,000 corporate table sponsorship. Included are valet parking, a cash bar, delicious dinner, silent auction and musical revue. For more information, please call the Alumni Office at 318-797-5190.
