Hosting this event on its given Saturday is one of the highlights of the year for the UL Lafayette Alumni Association. Proceeds from the evening are dedicated to funding initiatives by the Alumni Association.
The 2023 Spring Gala was held at the Alumni Center on Saturday, March 25 from 6:00-10:00 p.m. Bryan Hanks has been named the 2023 honoree, recognized for his continued passion for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, exceptional dedication to Acadiana, and commitment to the future successes of both.

In the last 25 years, Spring Gala has surpassed the $1 million milestone in net proceeds thanks to the generous contribution of our community and alumni. The Alumni Association greatly appreciates the support received to help our facilities thrive throughout Lafayette and the University.
