Today, Judge Ellis Daigle, 27th Judicial District Judge, made a substantial donation to the Opelousas Area Cerebral Palsy Clinic. The donation comes from the proceeds of a class action lawsuit and the judge has been able to distribute these funds to area charities dealing with health and well-being.
The donation is being tied to the annual "Breakfast with Santa" fundraiser that is held every December. Santa Claus will be accepting the check for a "Christmas in July" celebration. The clinic provides FREE physical, occupational, and speech therapy to children with disabilities. The clinic has been in operation since 1957.
