The Inaugural Chicken Wing & Thigh BBQ Cookoff will be held Saturday, July 22 to raise funds for the Patriot Guard Riders.

The monies raised will go to the Veteran's Care Package Drive, a program put on by the Patriot Guard Riders to buy necessities for veterans in veterans homes.

The event is open to the public from 9 am - 3 pm, and will be held at Cajun Harley-Davidson in Scott. A $5 wristband gets you all-you-can-sample, while supplies last. Judging begins at 11 am.

There will be an auction and a 50/50 raffle, a Jeep Show-N-Shine, and DJ "Lady J" will be providing music.

For more information about the event, or if you would like to donate to the Patriot Guard Riders' mission to provide necessary items to veterans in the veterans' homes, contact Robert Lebon at 337-356-4579.
