Join us for the annual Brad and Big Rich’s Cajun Chef’s Cookoff, a heartwarming event with a mission to support those in need. What began as a delightful family affair featuring Cajun Cooking, Live Music, and Auctions at Stingaree Restaurant, has evolved into a significant fundraising extravaganza over the years. Founded by Brad Vratis of Stingaree Restaurant, Rich Courville of Courville’s Catering, and David Harris of Bolivar LIVE, this event has weathered storms and celebrated sunny days, all in the spirit of giving back.
Through the years, we've accomplished remarkable feats – from assisting non-profits to aiding individuals in dire need, like funding life-saving brain surgeries. Every year, we choose a new beneficiary, ensuring that our impact is far-reaching. In 2021, all proceeds from the Cook-off, Auctions, T-shirt Sales, and more, were dedicated to the Organ Donor Network in Memory Of Rayna Reagan, a cherished friend to us all.
Mark your calendars for October 13-14, 2023, and be part of the magic. This year, our event is bigger than ever, featuring the thrilling Saltwater Slam Fishing Tournament. And that's not all – a Calcutta Friday Evening has been added for both the Fishing Tournament and Cookoff, enhancing the excitement.
