Boiling N' Bragging 2015

08.15.2015 6-9 P.M.
Otey's in Crestline Village

This event is a lot of fun with friendly banter back and forth about our schools and the upcoming football season. The food alone is worth the price of admission, with a shrimp boil, jambalaya, hamburgers and hot dogs, including soft drinks. It is also a kid friendly environment with games for the kids, some of the school mascots and tours of the emergency equipment used. This event benefits the Critical Care Transport Unit of Children’s Hospital with 100% of the proceeds going to this group. Last year over $80,000 was raised for their benefit.

You can learn more about it at Boiling N' Bragging.
