Spring Gala

Spring Gala has been an annual event anticipated by University and community supporters each year since its inception in 1997. Hosting this event on its given Saturday is one of the highlights of the year for the UL Lafayette Alumni Association as it serves as our only fund raising event. Proceeds from the evening are dedicated to funding Alumni facilities such as the Alumni Center, a historic landmark of the community that we are proud to have as a focal point of the University, and the future alumni pavilion at Cajun Field.

Spring Gala features both a silent and live auction including a variety of attractive items to bid on such as original artwork, unique gift assortments, travel opportunities and Ragin' Cajuns merchandise. The event offers fine food and entertainment throughout the night as well.

Tickets are $100 per individual. Platinum sponsor tables may be purchased for $10,000, corporate sponsor tables are available for $5,000, and patron sponsor tables are $2,000. To learn more about becoming a sponsor or patron, contact Catherine Baudoin at or (337) 482-0904.

In the last 21 years, Spring Gala has surpassed the $1 million milestone in net proceeds thanks to the generous contribution of the Acadiana community and our alumni. The Alumni Association greatly appreciates the support received to help our facilities thrive throughout Lafayette and the University.
