Mr. Arlen “Benny” Cenac is well known as an avid outdoorsman and for his interest in coastal restoration stated that sponsoring this event wasn’t even a question. “The conservation and education of Louisiana wildlife and coastal restoration are two things that have always been significant to me. To be a part of celebrating the people who cherish the importance of these things just as much as I do always makes for a great partnership. We look forward to participating each year.”
Thank you to all of those who were able to attend the event and congratulations to the very significant men and women who have conquered these achievements. We look forward to celebrating this award program in the years to come.
