The annual Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Banquet for Lafayette was held at River Oaks on the eve of opening day. Men in camo gathered and gabbed about preparations and anticipation of hunting the marshes of South Louisiana, while the ladies sipped cocktails and discussed shopping to do while the men are away. The organization exists to help efforts in conservation of the wetlands and habitats for waterfowl, and on this evening silent and live auctions were held to fund those efforts. A hot item was the coveted Cherry Bounce sold to William Mills for $4,500. The night also included the presentation of the Donald Doiron Achievement Award to Matt Stuller, recognizing Stuller’s longtime commitment to helping local wetland conservation.

When Moss Motors’ grand opening announcement came in the mail, it wasn’t your average invite — bright colors and the promise of a party. True to Sharon Moss’s form, the shindig included more than a ribbon cutting and boasted a DJ and cool drinks. That yellow Lamborghini was an eye-catcher, but there were a lot of exotic standouts at the new Moss Automotive Superstore near the airport. The $1.8 million complex was built on four acres leased from the Lafayette Airport Commission and carries an inventory so diverse that it includes everything from a used Maserati to a $2,000 entry-level car for your teenager driver.
