Crawfish for a cause
Every year, the Crawfish Fest event benefits Destination Hoover International (DHI)—a non-profit that fosters international relationships uniting Hoover with people throughout the world—which then funds two student scholarships—one at Hoover High School and one at Spain Park High School. Jubilee Joe’s has raised over $15,000 for student scholarships.
Check out the available auction items benefitting DHI here, going live on April 19. You don’t want to miss out on this!
“DHI is honored to continue to work with Kashif and Sharmeen Siddiqui, owners of Jubilee Joe’s Cajun Seafood Restaurant here in Hoover. We are thrilled to be fulfilling our mission by supporting students who plan to study in fields focused on international relations and cultural exchange.”Shelley Shaw, Board President, Destination Hoover International
