On Wednesday, March 19, 2014, Upper Lafayette Economic Development Foundation will be hosting a luncheon to honor Nelson Warner, full-time volunteer for Bridge Ministry of Acadiana, as the 2014 Upper Lafayette Philanthropist of the Year. The event will be held from 11:30-1:00 p.m. at Oakbourne Country Club, located at 3700 E. Simcoe Street.
Nelson has dedicated his life to bridging the gap in Acadiana between those who have much and those who are under-resourced, through his work with Bridge Ministry of Acadiana. Raymond Hebert, Community Foundation of Acadiana, will be the guest speaker at the event where he will discuss his thoughts on how a community's "goodness" determines its greatness.
Tickets are $35 each, or a table for eight may be reserved for $300, and may be purchased online at www.upperlafayette.com/events. Payment may be mailed to ULEDF P.O. Box 53107, Lafayette, LA 70505.
