“WYES – 60 Years and Still Groovin’” will be held on Thursday, March 23, at the home of Dana and Steve Hansel. At this gala, WYES will celebrate 60 years as our region’s educator and storyteller, and pictured Co-Chairs Mary and Bill Hines, C.C. and Bill Langenstein and Hunter Hill (not pictured: Kaylea Hill) and their committee invite you to join in the fun.
The festive 1960s-themed evening will begin with a Patron Party at 6:30 p.m., followed by the Gala at 8 p.m. This evening promises to be an exciting event that brings together multiple generations of partygoers to celebrate WYES’ longstanding commitment to our region.
For nearly 60 years, WYES has worked to inform, teach, illuminate, entertain and inspire our community. It is the oldest public television station serving southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the 12th oldest in the nation and the most utilized nonprofit organization in our two states, with as many as a half-million people partaking in their broadcasts, outreach activities and website each week.
