Raises $65,000 for new Infusion Center

East Jefferson General Hospital Foundation hosted its 5th Annual "Up on the Roof" Beer Tasting event, one of the most important events our hospital puts on. Thank you to the entire community for making it a huge success, raising over $65,000. The Foundation would like to first thank Crescent Bank and Trust for sponsoring the event. Without this generosity, the event would not have been possible.

In addition, we thank the community for its outpouring of support. Nearly 1,000 people came out on a truly picture-perfect night to enjoy a sampling of dozens of beers, great food from Drago's and area restaurants, and music by the always fun Bag of Donuts. Everyone who came out had a great time.
