The Krewe of Acadiana sponsored the first 5K Afghanistan Mardi Gras Run on Labor Day. This evening at 5:30pm in the back room at LaFonda's there will be a presentation to all of those who sponsored the event.
Dr. Daniel Wiltz is expected to be back from Afghanistan to personally hand out the awards and they'd love to have a big turnout in support of our troops. So if you are part of the media, part of the Krewe or would like to be part of the Krewe please join them for Think with a Drink.
Please feel free to bring a friend and join them for networking, krewe information and the special awards presentation!
