St. James Parish Hospital has canceled their Ladies Night Out event scheduled for Tuesday, October 27, 2015. The event, "A Brighter Future for Breast Cancer," is part of the fundraising for the Bayou Region Komen Foundation's breast cancer awareness cause.

The event was scheduled to be held at the St. James Boat Club, but due to the amount of water surrounding the building, and some flooding inside of the building the event was canceled and will not be rescheduled.

Event coordinators say they do not feel safe enough rescheduling the event with the forecasted upcoming weather. 

With nearly 800 people to attend, the event was expected to raise up to $5,000 that would go directly to Bayou Region hospitals.

For those who would like to still donate to the cause, checks can be made payable to the Bayou Region Komen Foundation. Checks can be mailed to the St. James Parish Hospital at 1645 Lutcher Ave., Lutcher, LA 70071.
