It's Mardi Gras time!! And DWIN of Duval County is putting on one of the best events of the year: The DWIN Mardi Gras Gumbo Cook-Off!
Last year we had our most successful - and fun - fundraiser to date. We seek your support to help make the Mardi Gras Gumbo Cook-Off even better in 2018.
Our event is scheduled for Friday, March 30, 2018, from 6pm to 9pm at the IBEW Union Hall, 966 N Liberty Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32206. We will again transform the IBEW into a New Orleans Fat Tuesday environment. Guest will enjoy appetizers, desserts, soft beverages, music, dancing, socializing, and of course some of the best gumbo and Cajun treats outside Louisiana! Wine and beer are available at a nominal cost.
The cost is $20 per person. Paid entry entitles you to taste and judge some of the best gumbo in the south. We will award two top judged prizes, as well as a People's Choice winner! A special feature this year is we're inviting all past Cook-Off winners and runners-up to return and compete for the Top Chef prize. We figure a little friendly completion won't hurt anyone! We're also inviting local and statewide candidates for office in 2018 and 2019 to compete, so look for the competition to be stiff. To compete in the Cook-Off, please contact Jessica Ransome at vicepresident.democraticwi[email protected] or 904-887-3260. She will take your entry and share details with you.
Entry tickets can be purchased online at www.duvaldwin.org/events or you may forward your check, payable to DWIN, to our mailing address at DWIN, P.O. Box 41365, Jacksonville, Florida 32203 (Please note Cook-Off on the memo line). No online payments will be received the day of the event, only cash or check.
