Alpha Gamma Rho’s eighth annual Crawfish Boil

Madison White, Assignment Editor

On April 6 at City Hall, Alpha Gamma Rho is holding their eighth annual crawfish boil to benefit Multiple Sclerosis. At last years’ crawfish boil, Alpha Gamma Rho donated $2,500 towards The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

Alpha Gamma Rho was founded on Tarleton State University campus on Oct. 3, 1992. Their philanthropy is the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

According to The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic neurological condition that affects the central nervous system, which is comprised of the brain and spinal cord. In the CNS, nerve fibers (called axons) are protected by a fatty layer of insulation called myelin. Myelin allows nerve signals to travel properly.

Not only are they serving up crawfish but there will also be concerts going on. Mason Lively, Blackland Fever and Chris Colston will be the openers. The headliners for the crawfish boil will be Grady Spencer and the Work and also Erick Willis.

They are selling all you can eat crawfish plates for $20. They accept card and cash. To purchase tickets for this event, direct message the Alpha Gamma Rho twitter page here or find them outside the dining hall. You can also purchase tickets at the door.
