We don't want to contribute to any beginning of the workweek blues. On the contrary, let's start by telling you about something good in Acadiana.

In this week's "Shaking Out the Good Stuff" feature with Morton Salt, we want to tell you how you can fill your belly with some delicious crustaceans all while helping out the babies at St Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Our friends at FUNraisers for St Jude will hold a massive crawfish boil on Saturday, May 20, 2023. They're calling it the inaugural "St. Jude Crawfish for a Cure."

And by massive, we mean big big comme ca! (You can see us holding our hands out wide since we're Cajun, can't you?) A total of about 10,000 pounds, to be exact, has been given to FUNraisers for St Jude to make this a fruitful event.

For $35 per order, you'll get 10 pounds of hot and delicious boiled crawfish, corn, and potatoes.

Order pick-up locations on May 20th will be from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm at Stine in Broussard (6501 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy) or Stine in Crowley (235 Odd Fellows Rd).

The crawfish will be boiled by the good folks at The Crawfish Boss in Broussard.

Here is the amazing part -- all of the crawfish have been donated by several local crawfish farmers. That means that 100% of the proceeds will go to St Jude.
