Ragin’ Cajun Feast for Education set for Oct. 20

MOORE HAVEN — The Glades Education Foundation’s premier fundraiser of the year — the fifth annual Ragin’ Cajun Feast for Education — is coming up in October, and GEF leaders are seeking sponsors and selling tickets for the event now.

This fun, casual, festive fundraiser is set for Saturday, Oct. 20, starting at 6 p.m. at the Dunwoody Lodge in Clewiston, and will raise money for the foundation’s projects. Those include providing mini-grants for teachers and emergency help for students’ needs, assisting educational programs throughout Glades County, and helping to finance the newly established, GEF-sponsored Moore Haven Elementary School summer camp.

At the annual fundraiser, participants will enjoy a full Cajun-style feast including boiled shrimp, seafood fettucine, boudin, frog legs and other delectable New Orleans-style dishes. Also available will be non-Cajun options for those who prefer a little less spice, including fried shrimp and sirloin steaks. There will be an open bar as well.

Authentic Louisiana Cajun music will provide the background ambiance as diners enjoy a memorable evening with friends and family. Participants will be able to bid on nice silent and live auction items such as fishing and hunting trips, artwork, jewelry, gift certificates and more, offering the opportunity to win amazing prizes while championing the students in the Glades County public schools.

Tickets — which include entry, the feast, open bar, music, auctions and raffle drawings — are available for $40 apiece for individuals or $75 for couples. A limited number of seats are available, so reservations are recommended.
