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. Proceeds from the evening are dedicated to funding initiatives by the Alumni Association. Wayne and Connie Elmore will be honored on April 7, 2018 at the Alumni Center. We are honored to recognize them this year for their dedication and investments in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and our community. This year's Spring Gala also welcomes the honorees' guest Nick Saban for a special appearance. The night 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. Sponsor tables are available for $5,000 and patron tables are $2,000. President-elect of the UL Lafayette Alumni Association, Chantelle Aaron, serves as chairwoman of Spring Gala with Rose Hoffman Cormier serving as auction chair. 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. Visit to purchase tickets.
