On Saturday March 7, 2009 the Krewe of Cajuns and Cowboys held its fourth annual Crawfish Boil at the Armadillo Palace. The event, sponsored by ApartmentWIZ, raised more than $10,000 to benefit the Texas Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
The annual spring Crawfish Boil has become a much talked-about event in Houston. This yearâ€™s event drew more than 1,100 people to the iconic Armadillo Palace on Kirby and Barlett. The attendees feasted on crawfish, jambalaya, and Coors beer while enjoying the melodic sounds of Bourbon Street Band. Event tickets and t-shirt sales drew a combined total of over $13,000. These proceeds will be donated to the Texas Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
The Krewe of Cajuns and Cowboys was originally formed to aid in the re-building of New Orleans. The non-profit group is based out of Houston, TX and includes alumni of Texas and Louisiana universities. The Kreweâ€™s mission is to assist the Houston community by holding social events benefiting local charities. These premier events attract young professionals from all over the city.
ApartmentWIZ president and Krewe member Philip Silberman, who helped organize and sponsor the event, said, â€œWe are amazed and excited about this yearâ€™s event turnout and the highest proceeds to date. ApartmentWIZ is proud to sponsor the Crawfish Boil and give something back to the community.â€?
With the continued success of the event and increasing number of guests and charity donations, the Krewe of Cajuns and Cowboys Crawfish boil is sure to become a popular event for Houstonians to help local charities for a long time to come.
