Skip Stewart, a member of The Boogie Kings dating back to the 1950s, organized a benefit he called Cajun American Recovery Effort (CARE), with proceeds going to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief in Louisiana. The event was held at the Eunice High School practice athletic field on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, October 30, 2005. The photos on this page depict only some of the performers who donated their time and music to raise money for hurricane victims.
