GUMBO Gathering - Acadiana

About This Campaign

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

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! 

While the game starts at 6 p.m., make sure you get there a little early because all donor family members, recipients, and those on the waiting list will be invited onto the field before the game!

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.

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. 


LOPA's Core Purpose is Making Life Happen.
