Red, White and Bayou



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

Carrie Beth and Kirk Catron, alongside Matt and Julie Stump, very capably chaired this year’s Red, White and Bayou, the signature event of United Way, and it has never been better.

Over 300 people enjoyed the hospitality of hosts Sydney and Dr. Jim Boerner. They opened their beautiful home for the sponsor party, then guests moved to the fabulous outdoor area to join the other guests. The Alley on Main provided a wonderful meal of Cajun and Bayou-inspired specialties, and everyone seemed to enjoy the perfect evening.

Our United Way, led by Meagan Flippin, improves lives by advancing opportunities for education, health and financial stability for all. Their vision is to be the primary community solutions leader for human services. For more information, visit www.yourlocaluw.org.
