Golfballs.com wins this week’s ‘Ragin’ for the Cajuns’ contest
Local golfball customizer golfballs.com is this week’s winner of The Independent’s “Ragin’ for the Cajuns” contest, a Friday competitive recap of local businesses, schools, classrooms and organizations doing their part to turn the town red in support of our Ragin’ Cajuns.
Each Friday by 11 a.m., email a spirited pic of your company or organization dressed in red to photographer Robin May at
, and we’ll choose a winner and post your pic and a short profile of your company, organization or school on our website (and, space permitting, in the following Wednesday’s issue of the paper). Images not chosen from the previous week are eligible to compete in subsequent weeks (the photo, however, must have been taken on a Friday).
Golfballs.com began in 1995 as an online-only golf customizing venture, but has since expanded into the world’s largest carrier of customized golf balls with a brick-and-mortar home on Arnould Boulevard that offers golf equipment, apparel and shoes, and accessories.
Congrats to Golfballs.com for their support of the Ragin Cajuns, who are trying for a sixth straight win Saturday against North Texas for UL’s homecoming game. Kick off is at 4 p.m. at Cajun Field.
