Bow Tie Bash is a CrescentCare event benefitting those affected by cancer and HIV in the New Orleans community. Proceeds from Bow Tie Bash will help our Food For Friends program deliver meals to cancer and HIV-positive clients who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.
At CrescentCare and NO/AIDS Task Force, we are dedicated to serving the needs of anyone seeking a healthcare home. From primary care to dentistry and women’s healthcare, we accept all patients, with or without insurance.
Bow Tie Bash was inspired by Chet Pourciau, who was a long-time volunteer for NO/AIDS Task Force. He was known for his vibrant personality and love for flashy bow ties.
In 2015, Chet passed away after being diagnosed with lymphoma. With the blessing of his partner, Jack Sullivan, we created this event to honor Chet and immortalize his contributions to our mission by raising funds for cancer patients that receive nutritional support through our Food For Friends program.
For 34 years, NO/AIDS Task Force has served those affected by HIV/AIDS in the New Orleans Community. With our expansion under CrescentCare, we now offer a full range of healthcare options for anyone seeking care. Our Food For Friends program began as a division of the NO/AIDS Task Force, delivering over 39,000 meals each year to clients who are unable to prepare daily meals for themselves. Now, we have expanded that service to cancer patients in the New Orleans area who need nutritious options on their road to a healthy life.
Sr. Marcy Romine, OSF
As Assistant to the CEO of CrescentCare and NO/AIDS Task Force from 2011-2017, she bound the community together through her care and commitment to HIV/AIDS causes. Her zest for life and passion for others indelibly marked hearts everywhere she served, making us feel special, and each friendship deeply personal. She assisted those at the end of their lives with care and compassion for several years at Project Lazarus. Described as a “woman for others,” Sister Marcy passed away unexpectedly on February 14, 2017. Her love lives on through us and her great work will never be forgotten.
