The Ad and Press Club of Southwest Louisiana proudly presents:

42nd Annual Gridiron

Gridiron, the annual night of skits, songs and laughter, is the show that the American Press called “the ‘Saturday Night Live’ of Southwest Louisiana.” It’s a local tradition! The fundraiser pokes fun at local and state newsmakers and the media through skits, songs, monologues and videos. Proceeds from Gridiron benefit the Ad and Press Club Scholarships at McNeese State University and Sowela Technical Community College.

This year’s show takes place Saturday, July 19, in the Lake Charles Civic Center Coliseum. Doors will open at 6:00 pm for a social and networking. During that time, guests will be able to visit several serving stations that will feature heavy hors d’oeuvres and other specialties from local restaurants and vendors. The show begins at 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $60 each and include hors d’oeuvres and the show. A cash bar is available. Tables of eight are available for $400. Tables receive reserved seating, so get some friends and co-workers together for a night out on the town! To get your tickets, send in the form, email your information to, or order online at
