Got a little change in my pocket and I’m headed to Grant Street Dancehall for the annual March of Dimes benefit hosted by Courtesy Automotive Group. On Saturday, May 22, from 5pm to midnight, come support a good cause and enjoy great live music. Steve Riley and The Mamou Playboys, Acadiana Party Machine and Dollar Short will perform, just to name a few, so go ahead 'give a dime'.
Tickets are $10 and available at any Courtesy location: Courtesy GMC truck on Johnston St., Courtesy Cadillac on Ambassador, Courtesy of Vermilion on Hwy 167 in Abbeville, and Courtesy GMC in New Iberia on Hwy 90. To learn more call 337.233.8476 or 337.984.5100.

Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
