As you may know, on November 14, the Thursday before Louisiana’s all-important runoff elections, The Hayride’s 2019 @Large tour rolls into Cajun Country for a blowout party to kickoff an historic weekend in the Bayou State. With this being the most important election in the state’s history and perhaps the last, best chance to make Louisiana competitive with our neighbors before John Bel Edwards and his gang drive us into Third World disaster, we should all be pumped up.
But if you’re not feeling it just yet, the program we’ve got planned for our Lafayette tour stop will change that and get you fired up. You’ll want to make plans to be there, and that starts with grabbing your tickets today.
Rep. Phillip Devillier and Sen.-elect Heather Cloud will be on hand for our Lafayette event, which will begin with a cocktail reception at 5:00 at The Petroleum Club, located at 111 Heymann Boulevard just off Pinhook Road. There will be an open bar and hors d’oeuvres.
And there will be a few special guests as well, because you never know who’ll show up at a Hayride event. Our Lake Charles reception didn’t just feature Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, but former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski stopped by along with South Dakota governor Kristi Noem. This event could be similarly star-studded. More details to follow as we get closer to Nov. 14!
Following the reception, the party will adjourn to Ruffino’s on the River, located at 921 Camellia Boulevard, for a VIP dinner beginning at 8:00.
Tickets for the reception are just $25. Tickets for the VIP dinner, which include admission to the reception (and a signed copy of Hayride publisher Scott McKay’s new novel Animus), are $200. Event sponsorships, which include 10 tickets to the reception and two tickets to the VIP dinner, are $500.
