SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -
The fun-filled weekend benefiting wounded warriors wrapped up in Sulphur this weekend.
"These guys are amazing and what they've been through and how they've come out of it, we just appreciate what they've done for us and we want to show them our appreciation," District Manager for Waste Management Beverly Gilchrist said. Waste Management hosted the Cajun Cook-off at McMurry Park where the Wounded Warrior game was held.
The Wounded Warriors had a busy day Saturday, July 14 starting with lunch at the American Legion Post 179 in Sulphur.
At McMurry Park, the Cajun Cook-Off started at 3 p.m. and the gates to the baseball stadium opened at 4 p.m.
Crowds of supporters for the veterans filled the bleachers. Skydivers brought in the official ball for the game.
The game started at 7 p.m.
Sulphur Mayor Chris Duncan said the Wounded Warriors are very competitive.
"It's all fun, we're here to have fun and we're here to honor them," Duncan said.
