ABiz Scene: Ragin' Cajuns Athletic Celebration

by Kari Walker

Business leaders and fans gather to support UL athletics and coaches.

The second annual Ragin' Cajuns Athletic Celebration, sponsored by the Ragin' Cajuns Athletic Foundation, was held Saturday, Aug. 24, at the Cajundome Convention Center where Cajun fans gathered to support the progress of UL athletics and coaches. Guests included local business owners and fans who mingled and enjoyed dining, drinks and entertainment - and of course talked about upcoming Cajun games. Preliminary numbers show about 1,500 supporters turned out for the event and helped raise more than $225,000 through tickets and auction items. All proceeds will go toward recruiting and retaining quality coaching staff for UL athletics.
