Free lunch and free admission to the public on Give for Good day in downtown Shreveport at local Museum


SHREVEPORT, La., April 27, 2016 – The Marlene Yu Museum is offering a free lunch to the public as a part of Give for Good 2016. The event will be on May 3, 2016 from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm at 710 Travis Street, Shreveport, LA 71101. Door prizes will be given out each half hour and donation stations will be available throughout the event. Featured food includes New Zealand mussels, cocktail shrimp, purple rice with edamame, pork dumplings, Chinese sausage, curry chicken, and veggies.

All proceeds raised during the Give for Good event will benefit the Museum’s 1UP Fundraiser taking place through the end of May. Funds raised through 1UP will go towards the renovation of the stairs and second floor of the Museum where more of Yu’s work will be permanently displayed, as well as make the Museum more accessible on local, regional, and international levels.

Give for Good is a 24-hour online giving challenge led by The Community Foundation of North Louisiana to raise unrestricted dollars for the nonprofits in our community. It is a day of giving to celebrate the nonprofits in the community and a chance to raise thousands of dollars to make the community even better.
