On Thursday, December 1, the Big Whit Foundation held its third annual Wish List Event sponsored by Merrill Lynch, Kirby-Orten-Guillot- Breaux & Associates. The non-profit foundation invited ten families from Ouachita and Lincoln parishes to Chuck E Cheese for pizza and games. Cincinnati Bengal’s All-Pro offensive tackle, Andrew Whitworth, founder of the foundation, surprised the families via video and told them they would be heading over to Toys R Us to go on a shopping spree! Local organizations recommended families who needed some encouragement during the holiday season. In addition, athletes from both Louisiana Tech and ULM were on hand to shop with the kids for an incredible experience.
