7th Annual Cajun Cook-off

7th Annual Cajun Cook-off

Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, cooks, and community supporters in helping us make this year’s Cajun Cook-off the best one yet! Because of the generous support we received, over $109,000 was raised for our Girls Inc. programs! The gorgeous weather and cheerful zydeco tunes set the atmosphere for the event. The silent auction, kid zone, and bar seemed to be a big hit but nothing was as incredible as the food. Our cook teams out did themselves this year preparing a feast of Cajun dishes for guests to try. It was a close call for some of our awards this year, the winners are as follows:
