Looking for a great team-building event for your employees? Sponsor a Gumbo Gladiators cooking team to bring everyone together to present your best pot of delicious gumbo. It takes a strong team to prepare gumbo samplings for over 6,000 attendees at this event. Each year, teams have fun participating as Gumbo Gladiators.
Last season’s competition consisted of 37 teams battling for first place with 49 different pots of scrumptious gumbo. This event boasted teams from Breaux Bridge, Texarkana, and as far as Lufkin competing with local teams in hopes of taking home the trophy for the tastiest gumbo in North Louisiana!
Bring out your best Cajun spirit and join us! All proceeds of this event support the work of Volunteers for Youth Justice, a nonprofit organization providing a community caring for children, youth, and families in crisis. The Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators is the largest annual fundraiser to raise support for VYJ programs, that provide advocacy for child victims of abuse or neglect and those who are at risk of being involved in the juvenile court system.
Last year, VYJ provided services for over 5,300 children utilizing 433 volunteers. Learn more at www.vyjla.org.
