BUST Breast Cancer -- Lindsey Rogillio proves she's a 'Rising Phoenix' as she struts down the runway for the 10th annual BUST Breast Cancer event benefiting Woman's Hospital.

Welcome to Pam’s Party Calendar, a comprehensive listing of all the fundraisers, galas, Mardi Gras Balls, etc. happening in and around the Capital City. The idea is to prevent multiple events from taking place on the same night, splitting that all-important dollar needed to keep all our nonprofits up and running. So, check dates before you plan your event to make sure it’s open. I’ve even included LSU and Southern football games as well as local school holidays to make things easier. As soon as you’ve settled on a date, shoot me an email at and I’ll add your event to this master calendar. Don’t worry if all you have is a date, send it ASAP and we can fill in the details once you have that information.

Look forward to hearing from you!
