The Centenary Alumni Association’s annual “Beast Feast: Something for Everyone” fundraiser returns Saturday, April 29, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Centenary’s Jones Rice Field. Beast Feast is a unique, festival style culinary event featuring an array of meat, seafood, and a few vegan items prepared by local backyard chefs and popular restaurateurs.
The event proceeds support student scholarships at Centenary College.
“We can’t wait to welcome alumni and guests to campus for the fifth annual event,” said Katie Chopin, director of alumni and family relations at Centenary. “Beast Feast gets bigger and better each year and this year will be no exception. We’re excited to see all the teams coming together and can’t wait to see what they cook up.”
Centenary is still looking for backyard chefs and cook teams who would like to have a chance at winning the Best of Beast Feast award. A new addition to this year’s event is four categories for teams to enter: Beef/Poultry/Pork, Seafood, Wild Game, and Vegan/Vegetarian. There are still a limited number of event and table sponsorships available as well.
