NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — “Real Men Wear Pink” honoree Greg Kayser will be hosting a special night to raise funds for cancer in honor of cancer warrior Tammy Broussard.

Tammy Broussard was a beloved member of the Louisiana community. She was heavily involved in “You Night Empowering Events,” which helps women embrace life after cancer with a runway show. Tammy was a model, coach, and mentor to other cancer warriors. She lost her battle with cancer earlier this year.

Greg Kayser met Tammy Broussard while doing a story during Breast Cancer Awareness Month for WGNO-TV last year.

He immediately was captivated by her kindness, courage, and fierceness. After her passing, he knew he wanted to do something to help Tammy’s family and others battling cancer.

On Saturday, October 16th there will be a special “Real Men Wear Pink Fest” to honor Tammy at the New Orleans Jazz Museum.

The VIP option allows early entry for a private tour from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. General Admission will be at 7 p.m.

There will be a special runway show featuring models and friends of Tammy’s from “You Night.” The post-party will be from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. The night will feature music, drinks, and food.

The funds raised will help save lives from breast cancer and will be donated to the American Cancer Society. A portion of the evening’s fundraising will be donated to Isabelle Broussard, who is Tammy’s daughter.
