First Chance Carnivale Masquerade Ball
If you're not familiar with First Chance, you need to be. It's a program that was started by a local Shreveport Police officer, Jessica Walker because she realized that losing the life of even one person in an emergency situation before it was cleared for medical personal to administer care, was too much... That's what First Chance is about... providing equipment and training via trauma belts to officers right here in our community. Saturday's Carnivale Masquerade Ball is a fundraiser to help First Chance. Doors will open at 6:30pm, with the party starting at 7pm at 601 Spring Street for this formal event. Masks are encouraged, but not mandatory. The event features valet parking, a champagne bar, plus full bar, appetizers, silent auction, live music and more! Tickets are $100.

The 5K will start at 7:15am and race day registration is $35. The half marathon starts at 7am and race day registration for it is $75.
