LAFAYETTE, La. – Double R Restaurant Group celebrated the grand opening of its third Romacelli
Bistro e Vino restaurant, located in Upper Lafayette’s Couret Farms community, with “Friends & Family” events
on July 15 and 16. Locals were invited to the restaurant to enjoy a complimentary meal and asked to contribute
donations to support two deserving local charities: Susan G. Komen-Acadiana and Knights of Columbus
Lafayette Council #1286. These charities received 100% of the donations made toward meals which totaled to
$5,100!
Gretchen Neuner Daniel, Area Director for Komen of Acadiana, shares “Every two minutes, someone in
Louisiana is diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to community partners like Romacelli - Couret Farms, Komen
of Acadiana has been able to invest $3.4 million into our community of 19 parishes and $1.04 million into breast
cancer research. We are truly grateful to Romacelli - Couret Farms for allowing us to be a part of their Friends &
Family event.”
“Knights of Columbus was so humbled by Romacelli’s generosity; we strive to make a real difference in
this community with everything from food drives and helping at youth camps to reaching out with assistance to
our veterans and homeless. Donations like this from Romacelli ensure that we’re able to continue these efforts
throughout the year,” says John Fruge, Grand Knight of Knights of Columbus Lafayette Council #1286.
