Bayou Legacy Walk
The Bayou Legacy Walk began simply as the “Bayou Walk” held on Carpenters Bayou and in its early stages was an event designated to raise funds for the Daniel Bazan Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund after his tragic death on January 18, 2007, at 21 years of age. Today this event serves as a time to emphasize contributions to the Foundation General Scholarship Fund as well as our other foundation scholarships including our memorial and named Scholarships.
