Help us bring hope this christmas in Ouachita Parish

Residents in Ouachita Parish have struggled with paying medical bills for long enough. Bring Christmas hope to families in Northeast Louisiana by purchasing your tickets to the Northeast Louisiana Celebration. When you buy a ticket, we will chip away at a portion of that indebtedness. We’re doing this through a partnership with RipMedicalDebt.

RIPMedicalDebt works with collection agencies to pay pennies to the dollar on medical debt. Coming to the celebration will also make a difference.
