Komen Baton Rouge Introduces its 2017 BigWigs in a Circus-Style Extravaganza Susan G. Komen® Baton Rouge launched its 2nd Annual BigWigs Reveal Party with a circus- style extravaganza at L'Auberge Casino and Hotel on July 20th—"BigWigs Under the Big Top." The extravaganza featured presentations by the 2017 BigWigs, aerialists, jugglers and caricaturists. Event-goers helped to raise funds for the cause by playing midway games and making donations to their favorite BigWigs. Komen BigWigs are local corporate and community leaders whose goal is to support the organization's Bold Goal—reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50% by 2026. Funds earned at the event will be used to ensure local access to essential breast health services, educational programs and support research to find the cure for breast cancer. 2017 Komen BigWigs include Cheri Ausberry, Dr. Jorge Isaza, Laura O'Brien, Joseph Possa, Dr. Aimee Russo-Mounger, Jim Urdiales, Kathy Fletcher Victorian, Elizabeth Vowell and Dr. Gregory Ward. Stephanie Possa and Kris Cangelosi served as event Chairwomen, and Chad Sabadie of Channel 33 News and Matt Moscona of 104.5 ESPN Radio served as Masters of Ceremony. The Greater Baton Rouge community is encouraged to visit and learn how they can contribute to this important cause.
