“We routinely run fundraisers for schools, businesses and various groups throughout SWLA. We know our
local krewes and population in general are disappointed how Covid has disrupted yet another great local cultural
event. We at Grafx Plus decided to put those two together and came up with Acadiana Yardi Gras as a way for
people, businesses or krewes to still be festive about the season, but also be in a safe environment. We also
thought this would be a fun way to show off your decorating skills and raise money for a good cause in the process,
said Eric Britt, President & CEO of Grafx Plus.
“We’d like to thank Landry’s Donuts and Don’s Specialty Meats for stepping up and sponsoring the contest.
K-Squared Creative also deserves special thanks for jumping on board and helping us turn it around so
quickly,” Britt added.
