For more than 20 years, supporters have gathered at Life Savers to celebrate and raise vital funds for Feist-Weiller Cancer Center. This cherished event returned on June 16 for the first time in-person in nearly three years. The theme – Taking Flight – symbolized not only the re-introduction of the event, but also bold new visions for the future of Feist-Weiller as it welcomed Dr. Sarah Thayer, who was named director of FWCC last year.
Through the generous support of sponsors, donors, and attendees, Life Savers 2022 raised over $130,000 for Feist-Weiller Cancer Center. Highlights of the event included nearly 300 attendees dressed to the Pan-Am inspired theme dancing the night away on the runway of the Shreveport Downtown Airport; Chef Blake Jackson creating custom flights of food inspired by Rio, Hong Kong, and Rome; and exclusive travel items in the silent auction including a week in Hawaii, a weekend spent in a luxury airplane hangar condo in Fort Worth, and a local date night complete with a sunset flight across Shreveport-Bossier.
Thank you to our sponsors, party-goers, and volunteers for making this year’s event a success. Stay tuned for more information coming soon on Life Savers 2023!
