As part of the Mystic Krewe of Apollo de Lafayette's ball Saturday night, a raffle was announced, with the winner to receive a one-of-a-kind Vivian Alexander egg.

All proceeds from the raffle benefit Acadiana C.A.R.E.S., a non-profit organization that addresses the issues associated with the HIV/AIDS pandemic, provides education and services for HIV prevention and services for those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

This unique Vivian Alexander egg, emblazoned with the MKA logo, has a retail value of over $2,500.  Raffle tickets are only $10 each, and can be purchased online!

The drawing will be held on February 17th, 2015.  Good luck!
