We all know what it was like going through a major hurricane last year and unfortunately, our Southeast Louisiana friends just went through the same thing less than two weeks ago.

Well in typical Southwest Louisiana fashion, businesses and folks are banding together for a Hurricane Ida Relief Benefit This Saturday, September 11 In Lake Charles.

The Cajun Navy of Lake Charles has teamed up with Bolton Ford for a benefit to help our Southeastern Louisiana friends with hurricane relief. The event will feature live music, food, and even the McNeese/LSU football game on TV.

The event will be held at the Cash And Carry building located at 801 Enterprise Boulevard in Lake Charles and the doors open at 1:00 pm and a $10 donation will be taken at the door per person.

  • 2 pm Rosie Ledet & The Zydeco Playboys with special guess Brandon Ledet
  • 5 pm Brett Welsh
  • 7 pm Geno Delafose & French Rockin’ Boogie

There will be Pork Steaks, Rice Dressing, and Beans available for purchase for $10 per plate and the food will be provided by Fatboyz Kitchen Table & Big Mac’s BBQ & Catering.
