(August 15- Lafayette) First National Bank joined in the fun of the 9th Annual Miles Perret Center’s Games of Acadiana by sponsoring the small rock wall. FNB employees turned out to staff the rock wall, one of the 40 fun-filled games that allowed participants to showcase athletic, scholarly, musical, culinary and just plain wacky talents.
“We are delighted to be a part of the Games of Acadiana this year. We proudly stand with our employees and other organizations in the community to support families in need,” says FNB president Randy Prather.
The Games serve as the annual fundraiser for Miles Perret Cancer Services, which was founded in 2001 by the Perret family in honor of their son Miles. The center was started to offer tangible, immediate and direct support to cancer patients and their families. Financial assistance, support groups, exercise programs, nutritional supplements, wheelchairs, hospital beds, wigs, and children’s programs are just some of the things that the center offers.
About Miles Perret Cancer Services: The Center’s mission is to serve with care and compassion those in Acadiana fighting and surviving cancer. This mission is achieved by dedicated staff and volunteers who take a personal approach with every client. In its three years of operation, the Center has helped more than 2,000 cancer survivors and their families in the Acadiana community. Miles Perret Cancer Services serves patients of all ages and all income levels, and everything it offers is free of charge thanks to the generosity of the people of Acadiana.
