St. Frances Cabrini School hosted their 3rd Annual Cabrini Crawfish Boil on Saturday, April 28th at St. Frances Cabrini Church Activities Building. St. Frances Cabrini Church was established in 1948, and later founded St. Frances Cabrini School. Both the school and the church have been serving the Cenla community for decades, and the name has become synonymous with servant leadership and community service in Alexandria.
St. Frances Cabrini School currently educates 260 students in grades pre-k through 7th, but are adding a full junior high program in the Fall of 2018. They have also broken ground on a new early childhood wing and expect a future enrollment of over 300 students for the upcoming year. Since 2016, St. Frances Cabrini has hosted a crawfish boil fundraiser to help the school achieve its goals, and this year the funds being raised went to the new expansion projects. Neblett, Beard and Arsenault has sponsored this event since its inception, and this year was no different. The firm was delighted to participate, and attorneys Jennifer Hoekstra and Sri Gupta and employee Ashton Brinkley attended to show their support.
The event included a live band, raffles for several gift cards, home-baked goods for sale, and hundreds of pounds of steaming hot Louisiana crawfish. Tickets sold out two days before the crawfish boil was to be held, and the event was a success with every seat in the auditorium full. Said a school representative, “Thank you for sponsoring a table at the Cabrini Crawfish Boil and your support of St. Frances Cabrini School.” Neblett, Beard & Arsenault was proud to have sponsored the 3rd Annual Cabrini Crawfish Boil, and wish the school the best of luck with their exciting expansion projects.
