Teche Center for the Arts in Breaux Bridge cut the ribbon to their newly-renovated building Friday.

The event was held to finally reveal the updates to the 1940s theater that houses the nonprofit. The organization also thanked VIPs including donors and those who volunteered time/goods to the renovations.

Officials estimate the renovations cost more than $200,000.

Refreshments were offered to attendees, including gumbo and desserts from Champagne's and Zuhouse. Guests also enjoyed live music and received Valentine's Day gifts.

Senator Fred Mills, TCA Board of Trustees Chair Coatney Raymond, and Breaux Bridge Mayor Ricky Calais spoke at the reception.

Staff member Clare Martin said she hoped guests "experience[d] first hand the treasures and honored traditions of Cajun and Creole community members that we emphasize in our mission."
