Volunteers for Youth Justice (VYJ) proudly presents the inaugural Jambalaya Cook-off, an event that brings together culinary enthusiasts and fervent supporters of VYJ to celebrate friendly competition and community engagement.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 21st, from 11 AM to 3PM, as this exciting gathering unfolds at the lively Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City. Embracing the autumn spirit, we're spicing things up, inspired by the enthusiasm of past Gumbo Gladiator teams. Approximately 15 cooking teams will rise to the challenge across three categories: Seafood Jambalaya, Non-Seafood Jambalaya, and the distinctive Lagniappe (Pastalaya).

Unleash your Cajun culinary skills and become an integral part of this event! We extend a warm invitation for your company to explore sponsorship opportunities and actively participate in the cook-off itself. Sponsoring not only aligns your brand with a meaningful cause but also grants you the privilege of joining the culinary excitement through our blind test judging process.

The combined efforts of community sponsors and culinary teams will play a pivotal role in the success of this event, contributing to the well-being of at-risk children in Northwest Louisiana. Please refer to the attached form, detailing five distinct sponsorship levels, each offering unique platforms for your company to demonstrate steadfast support.
