Acadiana venues and artists are donating their services for tonight’s national Gulf Coast Benefit for Fishermen & Wildlife. In an effort to unite the citizens of Southwest Louisiana and help those in need on our coast, a town hall meeting with experts and those affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon spill will take place tonight at The Shed in Scott from 6-8 p.m. Discussion will include the effects of the oil leak on our way of life and how to deal with the possibility of a toxic hurricane season. The panel will include Biologist from ULL, Warren Perrin (working on behalf of the fishermen in district court & the president of CODOIFIL), Chris Gilbeaux (from the Louisiana state HAZMAT RESPONSE TEAM), state senator Nick Gautreaux, Kindra Arnesen (a fisherman's wife and CNN and YouTube sensation), and other community leaders.
The suggested donation for all shows in town is $10. Money collected will go to Gulf Restoration Network and other worthy non-profits.
