Community raises nearly $10,000 for local teacher diagnosed with cancer
Bridgette said she was overwhelmed with the community’s support.
“I can’t express how grateful we are to be a part of a community that supports us as we go through this challenge,” Bridgette said. “Thank you to Rotolo’s and all the staff who worked so hard yesterday.
During the raffle planning, Grimaldi spoke with Paul Murray and Chad Murray of the Destrehan Rotolo’s Pizzeria about the idea of doing a Rotolo’s Night fundraiser. March 30 was picked as the date that 20% of sales would go to the Oubre family.
“The event at Rotolo’s was a huge success,” Grimaldi said. “I was told, unofficially, that they more than doubled their normal sales volume for the day. The Rotolo’s event resulted in a total donation of $2,000.”
