Textron and the MCC Group are also event sponsors. A limited number of additional corporate event sponsorship opportunities are presently available.
Event activities will culminate with a unique, 5 course dining experience dating back 300 years - meticulously explained (with a technology twist) by the first Spanish Governor of Louisiana, Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault!
