SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A Shreveport nonprofit dedicated to helping women receive free prenatal care is reeling in a major name in college football for its annual fundraiser.

Mary’s House, located on Margaret Place just across the street from Ochsner-LSU Health’s St. Mary Medical Center, is bringing in legendary college coach and broadcaster Lou Holtz.

Holtz’s monumental career in coaching has taken him from the William & Mary to the New York Jets to the University of Notre Dame, with plenty of stops in between. He was also an analyst for CBS Sports and ESPN.

Holtz was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

The fundraiser is called Fête for Life and is taking place Tuesday, Feb. 15 at the Bossier Civic Center, 620 Benton Road in Bossier City. General admission tickets for the event cost $50 each.
