Gumbo cook-off, beer and wine tasting returning to Grand Isle

Gumbo cook-off, beer and wine tasting returning to Grand Isle

Friends of Grand Isle, a non-profit community service organization, has opened registration for the annual Gumbo Cook-off and Beer & Wine Tasting event.

The cook off, open to the public, will be held on November 7 at 4 p.m. at the Bridge Side Marina pavilion. A $20 donation buys full tasting privileges for gumbo, beer, and wine. There will be premium wines available for $10 more. Judging starts at 4 p.m., followed by the live auction and the awards ceremony. The band will entertain from 6 to 8 p.m.

“We are excited to once again host this festive party and fundraiser for Grand Isle” said F.O.G.I. President Ann Smith. “It’s our third year at Bridge Side Marina, and we still have openings for cooking teams.”

In addition to the Gumbo Cook-off, the evening features beer and wine tasting, a live band, raffles and a live auction.

Registration information and rules for teams are available at www.friendsofgrandisle.com.
