When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. When life hands you nutria, you make fur coats and auction them to benefit our wetlands. Seriously, you do!

Nutria-Palooza will be held October 7, and will feature a runway show and benefit auction of nutria fur designs created by local Lafayette and Louisiana designers.

The show will be hosted by Righteous Fur co-director Becky Schexnayder and be held Lafayette Coulée and the Horse Farm nature preserve.

At the end of the fashion show, you'll have a chance to bid on the designs in a benefit auction. Tickets are $25/ $30 at the door and include hors d'oeuvres by local restaurants.
Cash bar includes signature "$5 a Cocktail" drink, Bayou Teche Biere and wine.

A portion of ticket sales and proceeds goes to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.
