LAFAYETTE, La. - November 25, 2020 - (Newswire.com)
Born and bred in Lafayette, LA, Blaine Barrilleaux is a personal injury lawyer who established a law firm in his birth town to serve his community. An alumni of the University of Louisiana and a member of the Ragin' Cajuns Athletic Foundation board, Blaine was delighted and proud to be offered the opportunity to support his local baseball team at its annual fundraising event: the UL Baseball Fundraising Golf Tournament held on October 5 this year at Oakbourne Country Club.
The global pandemic has caused real financial problems for sports teams across the nation, as events have been canceled or seating capacity held far below normal levels to allow for social distancing. Ragin’ Cajun teams are no exception and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette has had to dig deep to keep things going. Annual fundraisers for college sports are always important, but it was critical that this year’s event was a huge triumph, cheered on by local golfers and UL supporters.
Blaine said, “I’ve lived in Louisiana my whole life and have worked as a personal injury lawyer in Lafayette since 2002. The people in Lafayette and the surrounding communities are fine, upstanding people who believe in helping each other and standing together. The pandemic has caused many problems and challenges, so I was really happy to play a small part as a sponsor of the golf tournament and raise funds in support of the University of Louisiana baseball team.”
The tournament offered a shotgun start and scramble to the end, where prizes were awarded to teams that were closest to the hole on all three par’s. All sponsorship packages included a four man team, and each golfer received a Ragin’ Cajun branded hat and shirt, along with food and beverages.
Blaine Barilleaux commented, “It was a great day. The annual fundraiser remains a huge success and one that pays testament to what can happen when communities stand up and stand together. I am proud to be a member of that community.”
