This Sunday the 10th Annual 'jeep jaunt' rolls - rain or shine!

In its 10th year, the Annual 'jeep jaunt' has raised over $600,000 for the American Lung Association.  This year is shaping up to be the biggest yet.

As of yesterday, the event has 462 pre-registered vehicles, carrying 1,046 participants.  With this many pre-registered, we should easily exceed our largest crowd yet!  We've sold 274 t-shirts, and have received over $5,000 in donations.  Biggest.  Jaunt.  Ever!!

With pre-registration being closed, if you'd like to ride, just show up on Sunday between 7 and 9am at Celebrity Theatres in Broussard.  Day-of registration is $25 per person, which includes your door prize ticket and a meal (prepared by the award-winning chefs at Cypress Bayou Casino).  Even if you don't have a Jeep or 4x4, you can still attend the event.

If you'd like more information on how to get involved in the event, call me and I'll fill  you in on details.  My cell number is 337 849 8928.
