Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - The Cajun Navy of Lake Charles and Bolton Ford have teamed up to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Ida.

Saturday, Sept. 11, a benefit concert was held at the Cash and Carry farmers’ market. It’s $10 per person at the door plus $10 for a plate of Cajun food.

In addition to live music, the McNeese versus LSU football game were broadcast inside.

“We know firsthand what Southeast Louisiana is going through right now,” said event organizer Jason Hebert. “This all started before the storm as a little party at someone’s house. Now it turned into Empire of the Seed calling us and saying, ‘Hey, we have a building. Let’s raise some money,’ and it grew from there. We just want to try to raise as much money as we can.”

Event organizers say they’ve already raised over $16,000. Money and supplies are being sent to Houma, Louisiana.
