Glitter in Black & White

Perhaps it was the guests themselves, all dressed up for the Black & White Gala, who glittered the most at Lafayette’s Acadiana Center for the Arts. The event, held last Aug. 18, was a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Four area locals were honored with The Spirit of Hope Award: Diane Meaux Broussard, Dr. Luis Meza, Linda Rose and Ike Sagrera. Local journalist Amanda Bedgood served as event chair. (Acadiana Profile was one of the media sponsors.) The event helped the American Cancer Society live up to its motto: “The official sponsor of birthdays.”
