Gumbo Gala 10th Annual, April 18th, 2015, Regions Field
The LSU Birmingham Alumni Association is fielding a team of chefs to participate in the Gumbo Gala cooking competition for the best Gumbo in Birmingham.
The proceeds from all donations will go to Episcopal Place.
"The mission of Episcopal Place is to provide senior disabled adults with restricted income, safe and affordable housing and access to related services in a home-like environment."
This is our third year to compete in the Gumbo Gala and we are seeking support from businesses and individuals who want to contribute to Episcopal Place.
Last year our total donation was over $2500.00.
The Competition portion involves individual teams compete in the Backyard or Professional categories.
Each team supplies all of the ingredients to make their Gumbo (minimum 10 gallons).
At 11:00am people are allowed to come in and go to the different team areas and sample their Gumbo.
If they like your Gumbo, they vote for you by putting donations in your money jar.
At the end of the day the team with the most money in their jar is awarded the People's Choice.
There are also professional judges that crown the "Best Gumbo in Birmingham" Champions as well as awards for other various categories.
This year we are doing 10 gallons of our Smoked Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.
All donations are Tax Deductible.
Thank you very much to our current sponsors: Gorman & Associates, Oxylance, Gambles, Carl Suggs Barber & Style Shop, and Shades Crest Shell.
