A longtime friend, supporter and volunteer of the SugArena is no longer with us.  Patricia Allain Rinehart succumbed to cancer on April 2, 2019.

For many years, she tirelessly served as a volunteer at SugArena events. Shortly after she was appointed to the Acadiana Fairgrounds Commission, she found out the news of her illness.

Pat, as she was known, always had a smile on her face and never complained.  When you needed her, she was there, oftentimes without ever being asked.  She will be missed.
