Here at Lamarque Ford, we recognize Christmas as the most important time of the year. It is the day that our savior was born and it’s time to rejoice! Christmas is a time for cherishing our friends and family, spreading cheer, and being thankful for what we have. It is also a time for some much anticipated Christmas traditions! Here in New Orleans we typically don’t expect to have that picturesque white Christmas. However, we have our own colorful holiday traditions that make living in New Orleans during the holidays an experience like none other – even without snow! We get to experience bonfires on the levee, The 12 Yats of Christmas, caroling in Jackson Square and so much more! If there’s one thing New Orleanians have come to expect during the most wonderful time of the year it’s the generosity of Lamarque Ford and the Lamarque family. Lamarque Ford’s 25 Days of Christmas and the Lamarque family’s visit to Children’s Hospital are as synonymous with a NOLA Christmas as a slice of a Cajun Kringle from Haydel’s. You may even hear that we are behind the flood of beautiful Christmas songs on Magic 105.5!
25 Days of Christmas
Every year at Christmas time, Lamarque Ford runs the 25 Days of Christmas giveaway. This giveaway offers a $50 gas card to two lucky winners every day for 25 days straight (excluding Sundays). $50 towards gas can immensely help a family who is stretching themselves thin to make this Christmas a special one. That’s the purpose of this promotion – to give back to the people who deserve it! It’s so easy to enter our 25 Days of Christmas giveaway. Head over to our Facebook, click on the “Giveaway” tab, then enter your name, phone number and keyword. For more information on the rules and regulations click here. In addition, the Lamarque family will match every dollar that is given away in the promotion in toy donations! That amounts to over 250 toys gifted to the children at Children’s Hospital.
Visit to Children’s Hospital
New Orleans Children’s Hospital is a 247-bed, not-for-profit pediatric center located in New Orleans’ Uptown neighborhood. The children there receive loving care from the more than 400 physicians employed there. Every year, Mr. and Mrs. Lamarque bring the holiday spirit with them when they visit Children’s Hospital. The Lamarque family’s gift giving allows the patients to have a sense of normalcy during a trying time.
We hope that you have the merriest Christmas of all this year and remember the reason for the season.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.by
