November Newsletter – Ascension Parish CCA Banquet – Sponsorship

November 2016
Bevel Tech Group, Inc Sponsors Ascension Parish CCA Event

As many of you know, Bevel Tech Group, Inc steps up when the community, schools, or other organizations are in need.

Since the historic flood in our area in August of this year (2016), many people and organizations continue to struggle to rebuild and move forward. We at Bevel Tech Group, Inc take pride in the fact that we step up to help many of our local people.

The Ascension Parish CCA Chapter banquet event scheduled earlier this year had to be postponed due to the flood, but our great CCA committee was able to reschedule the event and it was held last week, Thursday, November 10th, 2016 at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center.

As with previous years, Bevel Tech Group, Inc was a major corporate sponsor and this year we were proud to be the Blue Marlin Title Sponsor for the event. As usual, the event was wonderfully planned and organized by our outstanding Ascension Parish CCA committee. The postponement of the event did not distract from its usual success. The event was a great success with overflowing attendance.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the CCA (Coastal Conservation Association), you can learn more about them by going to their web site. (

Their Mission and History are summarized below:

Mission Statement

The stated purpose of CCA is to advise and educate the public on conservation of marine resources. The objective of CCA is to conserve, promote and enhance the present and future availability of these coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public.

Our History

The Coastal Conservation Association of Louisiana is dedicated to the conservation and preservation of our state’s marine and animal life. It is a non-profit group organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. CCA Louisiana is a state chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) and prior to 1997 was known as GCCA of Louisiana, the Gulf Coast Conservation Association of Louisiana.

This year’s event was full of activities, including a silent auction of many unique items donated by various individuals and organizations. Many of those items were one of a kind in nature. Many other prizes were raffled off, auctioned off, or given away as door prizes. The highlight of every annual event is the auction of many items including items such as an African Safari, exotic fishing or hunting trips, dinners and cookouts, apparel and purses for the ladies, and so much more. And last, but not least, a boat, motor, and trailer giveaway raffle. All items are donated to the CCA which makes the event a major income event for the organization.

Pictured below are some of the photos with our employees and guests who attended this year’s event.
