GUMBO Gathering - Acadiana
Join Team LOPA to support the Cajuns during Organ Awareness Weekend!
About This Campaign
Join Team LOPA as we cheer on the Cajuns and help provide education on organ, tissue and eye donation. The game starts at 6:00 p.m. at Lamson Park. 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 together to cheer on Lena Myers 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!
For more information, please email Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Campaign to Support LOPA
Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) was established on April 1, 1988 as an independent, not-for-profit organ and tissue recovery agency. LOPA is federally designated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid as the organ procurement organization (OPO) responsible for servicing the state of Louisiana. LOPA is tasked with two main objectives; housing and maintaining the Louisiana Donor Registry, and recovering organs and tissue for transplant. LOPA partners with professionals throughout the state, including eye banks and all hospitals within Louisiana, to accomplish its life saving and enhancing goals. Education is key to this process, and our staff offers a variety of educational opportunities for the public and professionals within our state.
