Today at Bienville Square, the Alabama Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Red Cross is hosting its annual Gumbo Cook-off. Saturday’s event runs from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m..
Amateur as well as seasoned veterans of the favorite coastal dish will compete to see who has the best recipe. Celebrity judges will determine the winner.
Proceeds from the Gumbo Cook-off will raise money for the American Red Cross.
Live music and a children’s area are also featured.
Red Cross officials say on their website the money raised today will stay on the Gulf Coast; meaning proceeds from the Gumbo Cook-0ff will go directly to the services of the Alabama Gulf Coast chapter of the American Red Cross.
