Shreveport, LA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Louisiana State Exhibit Museum (LSEM) in Shreveport, Louisiana will celebrate its 75th Anniversary this year with a gala fundraiser event entitled “Let Them Eat Cake!” at the 2013 Glitz & Grits, 6:45-11 p.m., Friday, Sept. 27. This biennial event supports the extraordinary array of exhibits at the museum, along with the maintenance of the building and staff salaries. As a Smithsonian Institute affiliate, LSEM provides the area with a year-round calendar of outstanding exhibitions that would not otherwise be available in northwest Louisiana.
This year’s Glitz & Grits is proud to welcome special guest, Louisiana music icon Dr. John, a six-time Grammy winner and member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Dr. John will perform on the George Rodrigue Steinway Grand Piano painted with Rodrigue's famous "Blue Dog." His performance will include a tribute to the 75th anniversary of LSEM. After performing on the Rodrigue Steinway Grand Piano, he will add his autograph to the piano, previously signed by a number of other legendary artists.
Returning by popular demand, the event will also include entertainment by Windstorm, Shreveport-Bossier’s premier R&B dance band. Attendees will enjoy bidding on a wide array of deluxe items at a silent auction, dinner provided by Silver Star Catering, an open bar and more festivities. Valet parking will be available. Tickets are $150 and can be purchased online at http://glitzandgrits.eventbrite.com or by calling (318) 632-2020.
