Head to Pack & Paddle Dec. 13 for shopping, live music and fundraising for children's Christmas gifts.

Pack & Paddle is located at 601 E. Pinhook Road. At 6 p.m. Tuesday the outdoor gear shop is donating 10 percent of its sales for this fundraiser Pint Night, to local nonprofit Acadiana C.A.R.E.S. This organization works to help people living with HIV and their families — most of its clients fall more than 200 percent below the federal standard for poverty. Illness means finding work is difficult and keeping it even tougher so it's hard for them to buy Christmas gifts for their kids. 

C.A.R.E.S. is partnering with Pack & Paddle, Bayou Teche Biere, Freetown Fries and Smartwool to make sure kids get to have Santa visit. Freetown Fries will be there serving food and donating 10 percent of its sales as well. Bayou Teche Biere will be offering up beer for a $5 donation to the cause.

Bands Delta Pappa and Miss Emily & the Collard Greens will perform while you shop and mingle.

Call Acadiana C.A.R.E.S. at 233-9797 to find out how you can help.
