Vamps and vampires gathered at Keith’s Ballroom for the Vampire’s Ball benefitting the Children’s Shelters of Acadiana Youth. Deanna Head graciously decorated her exquisitely scary decorations for the festive chair-ity, where local artists donated specially painted chairs for auction. Local fave Hope Hebert’s creation generated the biggest bidding war for her Poppa’s Music chair. Louisiana Red provided the entertainment for the monster mash.
Beautifully decorated bras were up for auction for the third annual Save Ze Ta-Ta’z Art Bra Event sponsored by Zonta Club of Lafayette. Models paraded around the tables at Abacus Restaurant displaying the whimsical creations at the event, which raised funds for breast health awareness in Acadiana. The hilarious Sen. Fred Mills served as auctioneer for the festive fête.

Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
