Cajun fundraisers 

CARTI hosts its annual Ragin' Cajun Bash in the River Market Pavilions from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 12. For $30 in advance or $40 at the event, you get all you can eat boiled crawfish and the trimmings (or, for the squeamish Popeye's fried chicken) and free adult beverages. The band Lagniappe will perform and there'll be a silent auction. Purchase advance tickets via the calendar of events tab at carti.com.

More Cajun food for a good cause: The Allen School for special-needs children hosts its annual Jumbo Gumbo fundraiser in the River Market Pavilions from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 13. A number of teams will compete for cash prizes. Todd Gold of Purple Cow, David Bennett of Vieux Carre, Billy Ginocchio of Pulaski Tech and Andre Poirot of The Peabody will serve as judges. The Greasy Greens will perform beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance (available for purchase at jumbogumbocookoff.com) or $20 at the gate.
