  • 2019 GUMBO Gathering - Acadiana UL Softball Game logo

  • This month our volunteer GUMBO Gathering rolls into Lafayette to help support Organ Donor Awareness Weekend at the UL Girls Softball game on Friday April 5, 2019!

    We want YOU to join us as we cheer on the Cajuns and help provide education on organ, tissue and eye donation. 
    While the game starts at 6 p.m., all donor families, recipients and those on the waiting list will be recognized on the field during the pre-game activities. Our GUMBO Gathering will take place during the game in the Stadium Club where snacks and drinks will be provided. 

    We are very excited to gather all the Team LOPA Volunteers to support Lena Myers, LOPA volunteer, who will be throwing out the first pitch. Lena is waiting on a double lung transplant, and we want to help her bring a spotlight to the life-saving power of organ donation! 

    Tickets for the game are $6 each, BUT there is a special "buy one get one free" deal if you mention LOPA or show the heart on your license. Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 3rd to let us know that you will be joining our party in the Stadium Club. 

    For more information, please email Beth at bchauvin@lopa.org.
