‘Crazy Crawfish’ To Help New Orleans Church

Published May 4, 2006

Inspired to help a New Orleans church and school devastated by Hurricane Katrina, a group of Atlanta young adults will host the inaugural “Crazy Crawfish Boil Benefit” on Saturday, May 20, at 983 Canter Road, a private home near Lenox Mall, from 4-11 p.m.

The event is described as a “great big New Orleans-style party complete with pounds and pounds of crawfish, grilled chicken and brats, a great band, plenty of frothy beverages, and hundreds of old and new friends.”

All proceeds from the crawfish boil will benefit the children and parishioners of St. Dominic’s Elementary School and Parish of New Orleans, which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and is in need of help to rebuild.

The event will be held rain or shine, and volunteers are needed for help with set-up, cooking and working the welcome table.

The cost is $20 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.

The house where the event will be held is located a few blocks past Lenox Mall and the Lenox MARTA station. Attendees are encouraged to carpool.
