Sat., October 19 West Jeff Family Festival to benefit WJ Cancer Center

The West Jefferson Hospital Foundation’s annual signature event, the West Jeff Family Festival, will take place on Saturday, October 19 from 11AM to 11PM on the West Jefferson Medical Center campus in Marrero. This year’s theme is Gators and Goblins.

The Foundation is seeking corporate sponsorships and food vendors for the Festival. This is the fourth Family Festival the Foundation has organized to benefit the West Bank hospital. With corporate and community support, this year’s venue promises to be the Hospital Foundation’s best fundraiser yet!

  • Food Vendors
