Got beads?  Well, dust ‘em off in time for the 24th annual Ragin’ Cajun on April 13 in Lubbock! The Mardi Gras-themed event, hosted by Special Olympics Texas, raises money for South Plains area athletes and is sure to be a festive fundraiser you won’t forget.

Ragin’ Cajun will feature live music from local bands, and silent and live auctions with sports memorabilia, trips and jewelry, just to name a few items. Of course, guests can expect a delicious Cajun meal of crawfish, crab, shrimp, sausage and more.  The event will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the City Bank Coliseum on the Texas Tech University campus.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door.  They may be purchased at the WesTex Federal Credit Union locations in Lubbock and Plainview, and at the South Plains area office, located at 1318 13th Street, Suite 7 in Lubbock.  For ticket or sponsorship information, click here or contact April Benavidez (abenavidez@sotx.org) at 806.749.7000 or Susie McAlister (smcalister@sotx.org) at 817.332.3433.
