13th Annual MDA Jambalaya fundraiser set for Sunday

Staff reports

Family and friends of the Molliere family will be hosting their 13th Annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Jambalaya Fundraiser in memory of Kandice Molliere Sunday, Aug. 23, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the East Ascension High School Cafeteria.  

Participants can drive in and order and receive their jambalaya without leaving their vehicles, or sit in the comfort of the cafeteria and dine. Jambalaya, white beans and salad will be $6. Drinks and desserts will be available for purchase. Raffles for a $500 visa card are being sold for $1 each, and the winner will be announced at the end of the event.

Benefits from the fundraiser all go to MDA assisting families affected by this disease with many services in the community annually.

“For over 20 years, Kandice’s family was very grateful to receive assistance with wheelchairs, lifts and other ambulatory equipment during her life with this devastating disease,” said a family spokesperson.  “Please join us as we continue the fight against MDA, for the second year without Kandice with us.”
