Let’s Cook with a Purpose
On June 6, 2020, Crawfish Cookin’ for a Cause, a 501c3 charitable organization supporting local families affected by catastrophic illness, will hold its tenth annual fundraising event. In 2019, thousands of members of the community turned out, had a great time and made a difference.
Project Red Light for Hope
Beth Crutcher Giacone is a 47 year old mother to 20 year old Joshua. She has suffered with a debilitating condition called ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) since her son was two years old. Beth is a native of Covington and graduated from Mandeville High in 1991. Project Red Light for Hope has helped Beth and her family with the financial burden this terrible disease has placed upon them.
Grant’s Gift Foundation
Our primary purpose is to provide a network of resources in order to improve the lives of individuals with special needs, with a primary focus on underprivileged and disabled children, so that they can grow and prosper in order to reach their fullest potential. Grant’s Gift Foundation was formed by a group of friends who decided that they could make a difference in the lives of children with special needs in South Louisiana, specifically in St. Tammany Parish.
Brittany is an SSA and SLU alumna, Assistant Director at the Northshore Academy of Dance, and the loving wife of a St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Deputy. She is a daughter, sister, friend, and an amazing role model to so many.
On February 15, 2017, Brittany was diagnosed with a rare form of Multiple Myeloma cancer. She went through a battery of tests, intense chemotherapy, and even stem cell transplantation. Brittany has vigorously fought this illness with awesome strength and courage. However, the cancer has returned. Our goal is to help alleviate some of the significant financial burden that she faces in the fight for her life.
