Donations to Save the Gumbo Cookoff

We all want the World Championship Gumbo CookOff which provides an economic impact of over $1.2M to the Iberia Parish economy, while offering loads of fun and networking for competing teams, our community and visitors to return in 2021. In order for the chamber host the event each year, it must maintain startup funds of $35,000 and maintain stable planning capacity.

Please see the options below, and if you can, make a charitable donation to the chamber’s non-profit, Greater Iberia Community Connection (GICCO) to help keep the tradition alive.


Donation Levels (Based on estimated cost to prepare 60 quarts of gumbo and other fun facts!)

$15   Roux Basics Level

$30   Gumbo Trinity Level

$60   Cajun/Creole Food Fest Level

$98   Chicken & Sausage Level

$125   Amateur Team Registration Level

$250   Professional Team Registration Level

$500   Champion Contribution Level

$750   Wizard of Roux Level


All donations will be recognized with a “thank you” post on the World Championship Gumbo Cook Off Facebook page. Those donations of $125 or more will also receive a post to the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
