The Sadie Strong Hamburger Benefit Sale at Evangeline Farm Bureau today (Wednesday) was a huge success, with over 1,000 burgers sold. Though they were scheduled to start selling at 10:30 a.m., they began at 10 when a line of cars started forming. By 11 a.m., they sold out and had to pick up more burger patties. Volunteers began giving up their own burgers to help fill orders and many people showed up with donations in hand without wanting a burger. All proceeds will go to the Soileau family to help offset expenses associated with Sadie's multiple surgeries and extended hospital stay.
The Soileau family and everyone at Evangeline Farm Bureau would like to thank the many volunteers, Catholic Daughters, Ms. Mable Foreman, and the hundreds of generous people who showed up to help their community in a time of need.
