What better time could you have dancing, eating cajun food and raising money for Special Olympics Texas athletes? The annual Ragin' Cajuns held in Lubbock and Midland were held this past April raising close to $100,000.

The Midland Ragin' Cajun held at the Commermorative Air Force Hangar had a very good attendance with everyone enjoying the cajun fare and festivites.  The Lubbock Ragin' Cajun held at the Lubbock City Bank Coliseum was another big success with a big portion of the proceeds coming from sponsors and the live auction. We can't  thank all those involved enough. They make all this possible by volunteering their time to help raise money for SOTX.  As they say down on the bayou, 'Merci, beaucoup!'
