UPDATE: The family business that is conducting this benefit has sent an update for everyone:

This is Hannah & Beau Petitjean, owners of Jett’s Crawfish & Catering in Rayne, LA.

Starting last Thursday, April 29, we hosted an online raffle donation for an on-site crawfish boil for 20-25 people donated by us, Jett’s Cajun Catering, LLC .

The entry is $10 donation/ticket and 100% of the donations received will fund the search for the missing SEACOR Power crewmen.

I spoke to Brooke with Lift Acadiana, who explained that an account is currently being created for donations received to fund the search efforts, managed by Mr. Scott Daspit.

Rayne City Marshall, Stacy Ancelet will be here with us this afternoon to announce the winner. We will have a Live drawing on Facebook today around 5:15pm, and wanted to let people know that all donations received will be sent to Lift Acadiana with the same mission as before, to fund the search efforts for the missing crewmen.

All donations will be sent tomorrow morning, May 4th and we look forward to letting everyone know the total amount sent.

There is still time to enter into our raffle to win an on-site crawfish boil for 20-25 people. The entries will stop at 4:30 today and the raffle donation is $10/ticket.

Here's the original story:

A Rayne business is hosting an online raffle fundraiser for the United Cajun Navy Seacor Crew Search.

Jett's Crawfish & Catering will donate 100% of donations received from the raffle directly to the United Cajun Navy to fund the search for missing crewmen of Secor Power.
One winner will receive an on-site crawfish boil for 20-25 people donated by Jett’s Cajun Catering, LLC.

One entry is $10.

The drawing will be held Monday, May 3 live on Facebook.

How to enter:

Send your donations directly to @JettsCrawfish on Venmo (the last 4 digits are 6774). You will see the name Hannah Petitjean (one of the owners of Jett's). After the donation is made, comment on this original post on the number of entries donated. Each name (per number of entries) will be written on a ticket(s) for the live drawing on Monday. Example comment: John Smith - 2 entries.

Last week, the business had a small fundraiser that raised about $300. Prejean stated this is a larger fundraiser and hopes to raise more money.
