Jordan Ranch recently served up Cajun-style crustaceans to hungry crawfish lovers and $5,000 to adults with functional disabilities.
Admission was free for the May 18 event, which included activities such as music, crawfish-eating contests, prizes and games for the kids.
Attendees with a crustacean inclination paid $5 for an all-you-can-eat crawfish meal with traditional sides. All proceeds benefitted Brookwood Community, an educational, residential and entrepreneurial community for adults with disabilities.
“We wanted to offer a charitable component along with our event,” said Steve Sams, general manager for Jordan Ranch. ”People want to make a difference, and we give them that opportunity while encouraging them to have a great time.”
The Houston non-profit serves adults with a range of physical and mental disabilities including autism, intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injury and age-related issues. Full-time residential care is provided for 110 adults. More than 80 adults participate in a non-residential day program.
In addition to public events such as the crawfish boil, Jordan Ranch hosts a multitude of resident-only events throughout the year. Homes in the community are priced from the $200,000s.
