Lafayette, LA (KADN) — The Cajundome will auction off the name of it's facility on EBAY for Mardi Gras weekend. From February 8th to the 12th the Cajundome will sport a new name. The money raised will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Acadiana.
"We hope that this year people, even though I know times are tough, give twenty cents, fifty cents, a dollar. It won't take anything to make this year a very successful year for this organization, and to help fight this terrible disease that touches so many of us," says Gilbert Decourt, Food and Beverage Manager at Cajundome.
As a survivor himself, Gilbert stresses the importance of this fundraiser and is depending on the generosity of the community to give to the cause.
