Wear Jeans, Raise Money For Kids at Christus Sutton Children’s Medical Center

Today it was cool to wear jeans to work and school. “Miracle Jeans Day” was celebrated at Christus Schumpert Sutton Children’s Medical Center in Shreveport.

It’s a fundraiser in which people donate money to wear jeans for the day. And everyone wore jeans, even Miss Louisiana, who visited the children.

Lauren Vizza ,  of  Shreveport,  said she really enjoys her  job of raising money for worthy causes.

This is why I am Miss Louisiana and this is the basis of our job. As the Miss America organization, the Children’s Miracle Network is its main philanthropy, and so throughout the nation, we’re raising money and actually Miss America is like the largest organization that raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network.

It was all official, too. Bernadine Moss Anderson from Mayor Cedric Glover’s office was there to read a joint proclamation, naming today as “Miracle Jeans Day” in both Shreveport and Bossier City.  “We are urging all citizens to celebrate Sutton’s Children’s Medical Center helping local kids.”

Amy Heron, program director for the Children’s Miracle Network, says Christus Sutton Children’s Medical Center just recently became part of the network and this was their first official fundraising event.

Students from Loyola Prep were also on hand to help out. The  hospital provides care for 40,000 newborns and children each year on its shared campus with Christus Health Shreveport-Bossier.
