The Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance will hold its Fun on the Bayou fundraiser at 6 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Isle of Capri Casino and Hotel.

The event, which will benefit regional economic development, will feature live music, a dinner and a chance to win $10,000.

“It helps us build a better quality of life for our community,” said Avon Knowlton, alliance director of member and investor services. “That’s our main focus, to be here for business and industry. We fight to make a difference in the economic development of this community every day.”

The event will feature a catered dinner and will include live music by the band Lagniappe, along with a comedy performance and cash-prize drawings.

“This is the second year for our event, but the first time we’ll be giving away $10,000,” Knowlton said. “We’ll be pulling tickets out of the hopper all night. The owner of every 10th ticket we pull out will win $100. The owner of the last ticket we pull for the night will be the winner of $10,000.”

Tickets for the event are $100 and will admit two. Only 200 tickets will be sold.

To buy tickets, call the alliance at 433-3632.
