The 14th Annual Gumbo Cook-Off
January 25 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm CST
Join us Saturday, January 25th, 2020 to Battle for the Paddle and support A’Vree Greene and her family!
Fifteen-year-old A’Vree Greene was selected as the beneficiary for The 2020 Gumbo Cook-Off, scheduled for Saturday, January 25th, 2020. A’Vree is a sophomore at Opelousas High, where she is a member of the varsity volleyball and softball teams. She is also part of the youth choir at Morning Star Baptist Church. Her parents are Jermaine and Shayla Greene of Opelousas and she has three younger siblings. A’Vree was diagnosed with liposarcoma of the thigh in February 2019 and is being treated at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. She has had surgery to remove the tumor and has undergone multiple chemo and radiation treatments. Her treatment at M.D. Anderson is ongoing and plans are to start rehab once she is cleared from surgery. Chemo has been hard for her but she is strong, never complains, and keeps fighting! Please join us in showing A’Vree and her family all the love and support The Gumbo Foundation supporters and our community has to offer.
