It's time for one of my favorite events here on the South Plains; "The Ragin' Cajun", benefits the fine athletes of the Special Olympics. The Ragin' Cajun, offers up piles of crawfish, shrimp, sausage, corn and crab legs, local music, silent and live auctions. 2012, marks the 23rd annual Mardi Gras themed event, that supports area South Plains Special Olympians.

This years event will be held on the Texas Tech campus, Saturday April 14, from 4:00pm to 10:00pm at the City Bank Coliseum.

Tickets are $35 before April 14th and $40 at the door, and can be purchased by calling 806.749.7000.

Pass me more of that shrimp please!
