Cooking in Central a success

Gov. Bobby Jindal, left, and former LSU legendary baseball coach Skip Bertman, right, hold up a check for $40,000 representing proceeds from another successful Cooking in Central. This year’s event took place June 7-8 and to date, more than a million dollars has been raised through the popular showcase for Central.

Funds raised during the 2013 Cooking in Central will benefit Central’s Veteran’s Memorial Park, various projects for local schools, the Central Community Assistance Foundation, and improvements to the Cooking in Central leased property.
