The fifth annual Crawfish for a Cause, sponsored by SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest and benefiting USA Medical Center’s Arnold Luterman Regional Burn Center, will be held on Saturday, April 21 at The Grounds, 1035 Cody Road, in Mobile from noon until 4 pm.
Tickets are $25 and include all you can eat crawfish and beverages. Children ages nine and under are free. The event is held rain or shine inside.
The idea of a benefit for the burn center started with one of SERVPRO’s longtime employees, Sherri Marlin, whose husband had been one of its patients. Based on his positive experience, the organization decided to channel their fundraising efforts into an annual event.
“We wanted to raise money to help the burn center provide the same great care for other people,” says SERVPRO of Mobile Northwest owner T. John Mayhall. “Since then, we have met many people whose lives were positively affected by the center and its wonderful staff. We are so proud of the momentum we have built since we started and continue to build upon each year."
The crawfish will be cooked up fresh onsite by DIP Seafood. There will be live music, kids activities and a silent auction. Smokin' Gringos food truck will be on site serving food for those that don't eat crawfish for an additional charge.
Last year the event raised over $12,500 for the burn center.
As a state-certified Level 1 Trauma and Burn Center, University of South Alabama Medical Center serves as the major referral center for patients with traumatic injuries from southern Alabama, southeast Mississippi, and portions of northwest Florida. Last year alone, USA Medical Center served patients in 53 counties.
The Medical Center’s designated trauma team - which includes around-the-clock trauma surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons, and neurosurgeons - treats an average of five critically injured patients a day, which is more than 1,700 people a year. As the go-to facility for the area’s toughest emergencies, USA Medical Center is capable of providing total care for every aspect of injury, from prevention through rehabilitation. USA Medical Center is a part of USA Health.
