The Woodlands Crawfish Festival
Crawfish, Zydeco and Alligator? Oh my!
On March 27, PHA Board of Trustees member Jack Stibbs and family and the Houston-area PH community, in partnership with The Woodlands, Texas Chamber of Commerce hosted The Woodlands Crawfish Festival to benefit pulmonary hypertension research and raise awareness of the illness. Lively zydeco music, steaming plates of crawfish (or “bugs”), and plenty of activities for the kids helped these Texans party New Orleans-style to benefit a great cause.
CurePH event committee member Matacha Saul sums up the day:
"It was a great success, gorgeous day and fun had by all. We are getting some good feedback. We had approximately 2,000 in attendance, ate 6,000 lbs of crawfish, 160 lbs of alligator and 2,000 pieces of chicken."
