The Renaissance Hotel on Bluebonnet Blvd. will be the scene of the 2022 Hayride Baton Rouge dinner on May 4.

The event will come off just like previous ones we’ve done. It’ll start with a 6:00 cocktail hour, which will be an open bar for beer and wine and a cash bar for mixed drinks and other spirits. Just after 7:00 we’ll have dinner and the program.

And what a program! Speakers for this year’s Baton Rouge dinner include…

  • State Representative Laurie Schlegel;
  • Louisiana Solicitor General Liz Murrill; and
  • Syndicated radio talk host Moon Griffon.

Having Griffon as a speaker for a Hayride event is a long-overdue happening we’re overjoyed to produce, as Griffon has been the pre-eminent conservative talk host in Louisiana for many years. And of course Liz Murrill has argued five times in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the state of Louisiana; she’s a candidate for Attorney General in next year’s elections. Laurie Schlegel is a first-term legislator from Metairie who took over after winning a special election to replace Charles Henry; she’s rapidly built a reputation as one of the brightest stars in the legislature.

We’re really excited about this year’s event, and we hope you are, too. Tickets for the event are $80, and table sponsorships, which include a reserved table with signage and 10 tickets for your invited guests, go for $1500.

Here’s a link to buy tickets for the event. And here’s a link by which your organization can sponsor a table. We’ll see you on May 4!
