Youth Empowerment Project

YEP Fest, presented by IBERIABANK, overtook Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard on Sunday, March 24. The third annual fundraiser for Youth Empowerment Project invited local businesses to compete in pedicab races.

Palmisano won first place, beating out 20 teams in construction, media, gumbo, professional services and hospitality “heats.” Landis Construction raised the most money in YEP’s team fundraiser. Crowds enjoyed lively performances by Bo Dollis, Jr., Hot 8 Brass Band, YEP Drumline & Dance Team and Carmouche Performing Arts Academy and an appearance by Laissez Boys.

All YEP Fest proceeds will help underserved youth through education, mentoring, employment readiness and enrichment programs.
