The Grand Champion winner (judges voted for their favorite from the winners of each category) this year was the Ragin Pelicans for their Seafood Gumbo.

The Taster's Choice Award (People's Choice) went to Special FX for their Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.

The Spirit Award went to the Krewe de Gumbo who, as you can see, went all out with their costumes. They even had a mini Mardi Gras parade, complete with a float (red wagon) and a one-wheeled bicycle (as the old Cajun man called it)!

The proceeds from the event will be used to help the families of those under hospice care with Community Home Health. Many of these patients and their families are in need of basic necessities, from food, electricity, rent, etc., to needing home repairs/remodeling to accommodate for wheelchairs and other medical equipment.
