No one does Christmas quite like Natchitoches. We soak up the joys of celebrating the season each year with our favorite annual events and hallmark traditions: first Saturday fireworks, the parade, the Christmas Gala, eggnog, and more.
We are adding one, fantastic event to the season line-up we all look forward to each year. Top business leaders, elected officials, and community supporters are cordially invited to the best, biggest, and brightest Christmas party of the year--The Thrive Gala. The Thrive Gala will be held Thursday evening, December 9th, from 6 PM to 9 PM, at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum. Experience the excitement of Christmas festivities in Natchitoches anew, with a night of decadent food, specially crafted cocktails and mocktails, and holiday entertainment. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind auction packages, consisting of coveted experiences and items, silent auction style.
This Gala will be a festive opportunity to network and celebrate the season with your fellow Chamber members and dignitaries, all while supporting the mission of the Chamber to make the Natchitoches area a thriving business community.
Proceeds from this event will go to the recently re-instated Natchitoches Area Chamber Foundation. The Chamber Foundation supports Chamber initiatives such as the Natchitoches Young Professionals, the A+ Coalition, and Leadership Natchitoches, all of which strengthen our community and its leaders and contribute to a stronger economy.
If you would like to contribute to the Gala with the donation of an experience or an item for the silent auction, please contact Anna Waxley, Events Coordinator for the Chamber, at 318-238-1945 or email Anna for more information. All donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive plenty of recognition for your donation before, during, and after the event.
Many of our top-tier member businesses have tickets included for this event. You can claim your tickets by emailing Maggie, or by registering with your member login.
