The second Annual Battle for the Paddle will be at the Lake Charles Civic Center Amphitheatre on Thursday, March 16.
It goes from 5 to 8 pm. The community is invited to enjoy live music by LA ROXX while sampling jambalaya and pastalaya from more than 16 competing teams. Cold drinks and beer will be sold at the St. Patrick’s Day-themed event.
Tickets start at $10 for a student, veteran or first responder Sampler Ticket and $15 for a general Sampler Ticket. Sampler Tickets guarantee you as much jambalaya and pastalaya as you can eat!
A limited number of VIP Lounge Tickets are available for $50 each for those 21 and over. These tickets include all-you-can-eat samples of the competing team’s food and beer, and wine. You will also enjoy comfortable raised seating to watch the live show!
“Some lucky person can win 8 free VIP tickets right now by texting LUCKY7 to 40403,” explained Denise Durel, President and CEO of United Way of Southwest Louisiana. “Everyone loved LA Roxx last year so we’re bringing them back again. We want people to come enjoy the music and the kids zone even if they don’t plan to eat. Those things are provided free of charge by us so families can just come have a good time.”
