Ochsner Health System’s President and CEO, Warner Thomas, is partnering with New Orleans’ dynamic duo and ultimate power couple, Tom and Gayle Benson, to combat cancer for the fourth annual “Moonlight & Miracles Gala” on Friday, November 11, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, alongside 2015 Miracle Maker Award winners, Dr. John Cole and Lori Ochsner.
The Superdome will open its green turf for a magical evening of cocktails, dancing and wonder, all for a charitable cause. Event Chairwoman Gayle Benson is working with more than 100 other “Miracle Makers,” promising a party to remember for its glamor and remarkable contributions.
The event’s profits will aid in funding for continuing research and patient care at Ochsner Cancer Institute. Ochsner Health System is the Gulf South’s largest nonprofit, academic, healthcare system to provide multidisciplinary care to cancer patients both young and old. The event also commemorates those who help patients keep fighting; the ones who put smiles on the faces of those who are sick and suffering. These are nurses, doctors and staff, along with family and friends; they’re caregivers, and through Ochsner Cancer Institute they’re also Miracle Makers. Ochsner has been dedicated to cancer care and research for more than 70 years, taking crucial steps towards innovating treatment programs. Offering recovery programs for even the most complex of cancer cases, Ochsner owns and has affiliations with 28 hospital and 60 health centers throughout the region, and employs more than 17,000 caregivers, physicians and specialists to treat patients as well as conduct more than 1,000 clinical research studies.
The event begins and 6 p.m., and tickets will go on sale in September.
