The 13th Annual 'jeep jaunt' is coming up on October 28, 2018, and registration is now open!

The 'jeep jaunt' is a 35-mile police-escorted ride from Celebrity Theatres in Broussard, LA to Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel in Charenton, LA, to raise funds for the American Lung Association.

Check-in at Celebrity Theatres is from 7-9am. We'll have breakfast, refreshments, door prizes, and music by Todd's DJ Entertainment Services. Then, we'll ride the beautiful back roads of Acadiana down to Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel for a delicious meal in the Pavilion, more door prizes, and an auction that features several one-of-a-kind custom items.

Over the past 12 years, the 'jeep jaunt' has raised over $600,000 for the American Lung Association.

The cost to register is $20 per person (ages 7 and up) if registered online prior to October 13; the cost is $25 per person the day of the event.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to own a Jeep or 4x4 to participate in the event! Get registered for the event, join us at the check-in, and then when we leave to ride to Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel, just meet us down there - you'll be registered, so you'll get the free meal and you'll have door prize eligibility!

We hope you can join us for the 13th Annual 'jeep jaunt' on October 28. We also hope you can share this story to help spread the word about the 'jeep jaunt' and, in turn, help raise money for the American Lung Association!

The Annual 'jeep jaunt' is sponsored by our Partners at Sterling Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram, KATC TV3, Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel, Celebrity Theatres and Hulco Printers.
