To choose a winner, attendees will have to taste each gumbo and place their vote for best in competition.

Votes are $1 and support the mission of John Paul The Great Academy to provide tuition assistance. The priest with the most votes wins the "Peoples Choice Award" and gets 10 percent of the events profits for his church's parish.

Votes can be made the day of the event and can also be made on the event's website before the event

Entertainment will be provided by Bonsoir Catin and other Cajun treats will be sold.

Tickets for the gumbo cook off can be purchased online for $50. This fee includes entry to the event, all you can eat gumbo, beer by LA 31, live cajun music and dancing, and an on-site buffet.
