‘Pink Dat’ collects $360 for cancer patients

LAPLACE — The Perry’s Posse’s Fourth Annual Pink Dat Day held Saturday at Judy’s Salon Central in Reserve was a huge success, according to organizer Joan LeBouef.
“We collected $360 dollars from women and men who honored breast cancer fighters by donating $5 per pink strip in their hair,” LeBouef said.

LeBouef added that all monies collected would go to help cancer patients in treatment.

Her daughter-in-law, Jessica LeBouef, started Pink Dat four years ago.

Kevin Duhon and his mother, 94-year-old Inez Duhon, participated in the Pink Dat fundraiser Saturday in Reserve.

All tips collected during Saturday’s fundraiser were included in the donations. Perry’s Posse would like to thank all who came out to help in this fundraiser, especially Jessica LeBouef and Judy Trosclair, the owner/operator of Judy’s Salon Central.
