Ragin’ Cajuns gathering
Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel, a multiyear sponsor of University of Louisiana - Lafayette athletics through the Ragin’ Cajun Athletic Foundation sponsored and hosted an appreciation party for fund members Saturday. The event was a once-a-year opportunity for members to meet for a relaxing evening in celebration of Ragin’ Cajuns athletics. Donations to RCAF play a large part in the University of Louisiana’s athletics programs. Gifts are used to increase the annual athletics budget, assist in the recruitment and retention of superior coaches, secure funding for capital projects as outlined in the athletics facilities master plan and increase endowment funding in hopes to build an even stronger Division I athletics program. It also helps to bring national exposure to the university and Acadiana, and provides a significant economic boost to the region.
