The “That Just Takes the Cake” committee would like to thank a few local partners for their support of this year’s event. The community has truly responded to the request for sponsorship and auction donations.

“Research is critical to saving lives,” said Jackie Cortez with Nursing Care of Morgan City. “Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Louisiana, and we are making a difference through this initiative.”
AHA-funded research has led to many important discoveries like CPR, life-extending drugs and surgical procedures that save thousands of lives each year.
