200 Years & Counting
Recognizing today’s shapers of Louisiana
In 2018 New Orleans celebrates its tri-centennial anniversary; we’ll save that celebration for later. For now, we offer a nod to our state’s capitol city as Baton Rouge commemorates 200 years of incorporation.
In honor of this birthday, our sister magazine, Louisiana Life, is throwing a birthday bash on Wednesday, April 12. The event will toast the incredible academic, cultural and economic powerhouse Baton Rouge has evolved into over the last two centuries. In addition, Louisiana Life will be honoring this year’s “Louisianians of the Year,” people changing lives and making an impact in Louisiana. The eight individuals we recognize include Rob Gaudet, Chef Hardette Harris, Andrea Normand, Kelly Stomps, L. Kasimu Harris, C.C. Lockwood, Dr. Larry Hollier and Coach Ed Orgeron. Learn more about these honorees by visiting LouisianaLife.com.
Join us at the Old Governor’s Mansion to honor Baton Rouge and these outstanding citizens. All ticket proceeds benefit Preserve Louisiana, which works to promote the preservation of Louisiana’s cultural and architectural heritage through education, advocacy and stewardship. The Baton Rouge “Bicentennial Birthday Bash” is presented by Community Coffee, along with additional sponsors, Raising Cane’s, Louisiana Seafood, Visit Baton Rouge and Watermark Baton Rouge Autograph Collection Hotels. Purchase tickets at LouisianaLife.com.
I hope you can join us. Happy Birthday Baton Rouge!
