An Angel Award Winner in our Midst!

HFO Executive Director Loren Carriere named a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation Angel Award Winner 

ONE OF TEN IN THE STATE AND ONLY ACADIANA-AREA AWARDEE

Next month, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation will honor ten everyday Louisianians doing extraordinary good for the state’s children at the 2016 Angel Award® ceremony. We are very excited to finally be able to announce that among them is HFO's own Loren Carriere.  He is being recognized with others who have given selflessly to improve the health and wellbeing of area children. 

We’re deeply proud of Loren and Hope for Opelousas. Along with our other Angels, we hold him up to show everyone how everyday goodness takes hold and spreads in a way that completely changes the future for our children.”
— BCBS of LA Foundation president Michael Tipton.

The stories of each Angel will be told at an invitation-only presentation ceremony to be held Monday, Oct. 17 at the Renaissance Baton Rouge Hotel.
