The Plaquemines Parish Social Aid and Pleasure Club commits to donating a portion of the proceeds from their upcoming crawfish cook-off to the recreation department. Some of the funds will go toward trophies, one of the multitudes of expenditures recently cut from the parish’s budget. “We wanted to step up and do our part, and not take away from the children,” said Lenny Jourdan. Part of the proceeds will also be set aside for local individuals and families in need. Last year, the event raised more than $15,000 for several beneficiaries, including families struggling with unexpected illness and medical expenses.
