BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital held its big fundraiser Wednesday night.

They call it "The Taste," and it was a big food fest at L'Auberge Casino with restaurants, caterers, and others showing off their best for attendees to sample. They encouraged people to dress up 80s style.

"We have Werewolf going on stage. This is an incredible 80s cover band. I'd say about half the people coming in tonight are dressed up. It worked really well and it's a new, added element to what we're trying to do," said Ethan Bush with the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.

Fun for a good cause was certainly had, with proceeds going to fund cancer services and treatment at Mary Bird Perkins.
