Rachel’s Crawfish Boil and Cajun Music Jam

In honor of Rachels love of boiled crawfish and Cajun music, our second annual Rachel’s Crawfish Boil and Cajun Music Jam will be held on Saturday May 9th at the Nicholls State University Farm (located on Thouroughbred Park Drive just off LA Highway 1 down the bayou from campus).  The gates will open at 4:00 pm with crawfish served around 5:00.  We’ll have a live Cajun band play!  We expect everything to be finished at the farm by sunset (mosquitoes will force us out!), but the group will likely continue the celebration elsewhere!

We are asking for a minimum donation of $35 per person, which will give you access to boiled crawfish (including corn, potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms), drinks (adult and non-adult), and that awesome live Cajun music!  All proceeds will go to the Rachel Ianni Memorial Fund to support graduate student travel. Checks should be made out to NSU Foundation (please include Rachel Ianni Fund on the subject line).  Checks and cash will be accepted at the door.

Because we want to ensure we have enough crawfish for everyone, we ask those that wish to participate to RSVP by Friday April 24th.

Because we are trying to raise funds, we will gladly accept donations of live crawfish, seasonings, drinks, etc.  If you would like to donate any of these items, please contact Quenton Fontenot.
