Livingston Parish GALA - An Annual Evening Event

The Chamber’s Annual Gala is THE premier evening event in Livingston Parish. Supporting the Livingston Chamber Foundation community initiatives.  

Fire & Ice with Date

The Chamber Gala is a favorite - even after the flood, and the pandemic, it keeps making a comeback. We couldn't wait to bring back the party of the year to Livingston Parish. The event is highly anticipated and sells out fast. Attendees of the event are sure to see the movers and shakers of Livingston Parish at the Gala. Everyone from business leaders to elected officials get dressed up in their finest for this semi-formal to formal event. The theme varies from year to year and with 2024 theme "Fire and Ice".

We have the usual favorites at this event including silent auction with online bidding, games, open bar, blackjack, craps and roulette. Our incredible auctioneer brings the live auction items to life, and the bidding gets intense, in a good way. We've had great items from the New Orleans Saints such as Drew Brees autographed and worn jerseys, Saints signed helmets, electronics, days of beauty, trips to beach destinations, chartered fishing trips and more than we can list here.

GALA is typically held in February or March

It’s the talk of the town and THE premier semi-formal to formal evening event in Livingston Parish, featuring a great performance and lots of interaction. With sold out attendance, you are sure to see the movers and shakers of Livingston Parish at the Gala. Get dressed up and party with Livingston Parish's finest!

GALA - 2023 "An Evening in Dublin GALA"

When the event is scheduled ON St. Patrick's Day, you HAVE to have an Irish theme, right?! "An Evening in Dublin" was another hit with GALA guests as they entered the event to the lively sounds of bagpipe music filling the air, and were greeted by none other than...a Leprechaun! Even the band was dancing an Irish jig and getting everyone to join in. And, as in previous years, there were plenty of games, and unique auction items kept everyone looking and bidding to help fund projects through the Livingston Chamber Foundation.

GALA - 2022 "Under the Big Top GALA"

After another break due to the pandemic, GALA was back again in 2022, and it was truly "over the top"! The theme "Under the Big Top" was so much fun and even included circus performers such as acrobat, flamethrower, and our very own ringmaster, Guests rocked to the 80's with the band, and auction funds helped with Community Projects such as Albany Community Park and improvements at the Council on Aging, and Maurepas School.

GALA - 2020 "Speakeasy GALA"

GALA funds the charitable arm of the chamber, the Livingston Chamber Foundation. The Foundation funds Leadership Livingston Community Projects, which in 2020 include a playground in French Settlement, a food trailer for the culinary program at LPPS and the Livingston Activity Center.  1920's in 2020 was an obvious theme, but we did it anyway. It's a fun theme to plan for, and when you look at the photos, you can see everyone at the event went all out in costume.

GALA - 2019 "Black & White GALA"

Back 2 Gala in 2019. It was two years without this event, and it was time to bring it back. The committee rallied and brought us a great event for 2019. It sold out in record time, and the event was filled with over 200 attendees who lived it up at the games, on the dance floor, at the auction and mingling with great new friends.  Proceeds from the event went to start up funds for the Livingston Chamber Foundation. See the full photo album from the 2019 Gala here.

GALA - 2016 "Casino Nights"

In 2016, we had our favorite DJ playing great stuff to keep the party going.  We were all blown away by the Micheal Jackson impersonator.  The look on the audiences faces was priceless as everyone got in the spirit. See the full photo album from 2016 GALA here.
