UWSC gets ready for seventh Paddle Battle
The 7th annual United Way of St. Charles Battle for the Paddle cook-off is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 2 at 4 p.m. The event is an annual gumbo and jambalaya cook-off that helps the UWSC raise awareness about their organization.
The Battle for the Paddle is an annual and festive gumbo and jambalaya cook-off between teams who cook up their own special recipes on-site and serve the results to attendees of all ages who pay $5 for this all-you-can-eat extravaganza (children 12 and are free).
The event is open to the public.
Along with an unlimited sampling of gumbo and jambalaya, attendees will enjoy live musical entertainment, a Pick 5 Raffle and local celebrity judges.
Prizes are awarded to the top three teams in both the gumbo and jambalaya competition, including the coveted grand prize - a beautifully engraved wooden paddle.
All teams participating will receive participation prizes.
At last year's event, 74 teams competed for the titles of Best Jambalaya and Best Gumbo in St. Charles Parish. More than 1,500 people came out to show their commitment to their community and enjoy the fun. This year's event will be even bigger and better.
For more information or to register a team, contact Cindy Johnson at 985-331-9063 (email@example.com).
