Mosing family to be honored at UL-Lafayette gala

— The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Alumni Association will honor the late Frank and Jessie Mosing and their descendants during its Spring Gala fundraising even from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Alumni Center.

The Mosing family’s commitment to the community and its support of the university will be honored during the event.

The couple established Frank’s Casing Crew in 1938 in their garage, and it has grown into two separate, privately owned oilfield services companies — Frank’s Casing Crew and Rental Tools and Frank’s International, with offices in more than 40 countries.

Four generations of Mosings continue the couple’s legacy. The company is one of Acadiana’s largest employers.

The event will also feature food, entertainment and silent and live auctions.

Tickets are $200 per couple or $100 per person. Sponsor tables are available for $5,000; patron tables are $2,000.

Proceeds from the evening are dedicated to maintaining and improving the Alumni Center.
