The American Italian Renaissance Foundation hosts an annual gala event to celebrate local and national Italian Americans. Each year 2-4 locals are inducted into the Louisiana American Italian Sports Hall of Fame and a national athlete is honored. The AIRF also honors local Italian Americans who have made a contribution to the community in the arts, civics, medical field, and more! At the gala, local high school seniors are awarded scholarships (Download the application HERE).
