Welcome’s to Pam’s Party Calendar! We hope this information makes your event planning easier. In an effort to prevent multiple events from taking place on the same night, competing for the same fundraising dollar, we’re trying to maintain a comprehensive list of all upcoming nonprofit fundraisers and related events in the Greater Baton Rouge area. We’ve even included LSU and Southern football schedules. So, as soon as you know the date of your event, please send me an email at pbordelon@theadvocate so we can get it on the calendar. See you at a party soon!!
