After hosting crawfish boils benefiting the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation in 8 other cities, Crawfish for Cancer is heading to New Orleans on April 21, 2018 at Mardi Gras World from 12pm-5pm for a good old fashion "boil-off" featuring nine teams from around the city.
Crawfish for Cancer (CFC) is a nonprofit organization that hosts crawfish boils in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Charleston, Boston, San Francisco, and DC, with New Orleans being the newest market for 2018. Each CFC festival includes unlimited crawfish, an open bar with signature drinks including Sweet Tea Vodka cocktails, and live music from local cover and jazz bands and is all for a GREAT cause!
The 5-hour New Orleans festival will be the first ever CFC "boil off" with delicious mudbugs from Flamingo A-Go-Go, Whiskey Bar, Sidelines Bar & Grill, The R Bar, Cosimo's, Three Legged Dog, Crawfish Meister, The Basin, and Stepbrother's Sports Bar & Grill. Live entertainment will be provided by DJ Flvko, Typically Booked, and Louisiana Spice Band. Tickets to the NOLA boil are currently $75, all-inclusive, and go up in price as the event draws near so hurry on over and get yours NOW!!!
All net proceeds from the event will benefit the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), to help find an end to a currently incurable form of cancer. The MMRF was founded in 1998 by Kathy Giusti and Karen Andrews soon after Kathy's diagnosis and has since become a world-recognized leader in cancer research. Since 2009, Crawfish for Cancer has donated over $410,000 to the MMRF thanks to our CfC family, so let's see what you got NOLA!
