Norman Swanner Foundation

In memory of my brother Norman Swanner who passed away on November 8, 2006, we have created a 501c3 non profit foundation to do several things in his name in our community. At the time of his death,  he was 56 years of age and was one of the sitting Thibodaux City Councilmen.

 

Our major fundraiser for the Norman Swanner Foundation is always the 3rd Thursday in October. Unfortunately my niece and Norman’s daughter, Jamie Beth Swanner passed away on December 24, 2012 at 38 years of age. Our fund raiser in October is called “Night Out with Norman & Jamie.” The event is
held at Nicholls State University’s ballroom with the dress attire being “Casual Dress –  Shorts Preferred”.

Some of our projects were the building of “The Norman Swanner Dog Park” in Thibodaux. Pavilions at Nicholls State University for softball, baseball and football.  The Pavilions are used for tailgating and cooking events. At present,  we have 23 scholarships in Norman’s memory at Nicholls. Below is a list of some of our contributions given back to the community in Norman’s memory.
