King Cake Classic

The 2021 King Cake Classic was a virtual success – literally and figuratively – thanks to strong support from race participants and community sponsors.

There were 126 total participants and 29 were out of towners from as far away as Arizona, Florida, New York, Oregon, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. Leila Gerencser of Bossier City, LA, and Bob Bruno of Bossier City, LA, were the overall 5K winners. Catherine Guidry of Shreveport, LA, and John Baker of Fort Worth, TX, were the overall 10K winners. Congratulations to these winners and the rest of the participants!

Many thanks to our sponsors who not only contributed to the mission of the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier, but also to the creation of an engaging online virtual event: Clarkes Jewelers, Quality Shades & Shutters, Red River Bank, A Kid’s Choice, jweinland Group Benefits, Torchy’s Tacos, PizzaRev, Southern Roots Dentistry, Breathe Yoga, Jennifer Bradford Photography, Lowder Baking Company, lululemon, Christus Shreveport-Bossier Health System, and Sid Potts, Inc.   

We can’t wait to see everyone next year at what will hopefully be an in-person event. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
