Lafayette Catholic Service Centers and Bodacious Productions are kicking off the holidays with the first annual Bodacious Christmas Bash, a fundraiser and goods drive benefiting St. Joseph Diner and Toys for Tots.
St. Joseph Diner serves lunch to those in need 364 days a year, providing an average of 60,000 meals annually. Serving the hungry of Acadiana since 1983, the Diner is making great strides this year, moving from its current location on West Simcoe, into a new location on the Lafayette Catholic Service Centers' main campus in the Boustany building on the corner of St. John and Simcoe streets. Construction on the new St. Joseph Diner is scheduled for completion in March 2010.
This first annual fundraiser will include music by Lafayette's own dance band, The Canes, and the Keith Blair All-Stars, featuring local talent Roddie Romero, Michael Juan Nunez, Mike Dean, Eric Adcock and Troy Richard. The event will also feature a holiday costume contest.
This event takes place on Friday, December 4th at 9pm at Grant Street Dancehall (113 West Grant Street, Downtown, Lafayette, LA 70501). Tickets are $10 plus a donation of either six canned goods or a new unopened toy. Those not wishing to donate goods can make an additional donation of $5 for a total ticket price of $15.
