On June 24, 2017, the St. Bernard-Arabi Kiwanis Club hosted a Pool Tournament Fundraiser at Lacy’s Cue called “A Shot for Shot” to benefit the Kiwanis Global Eliminate Challenge which is to prevent Maternal and Neonatal Tentanus. The family fun event was very successful with roughly 5 hours of non-stop tournament play. Kristine Koepp stated, “We had an awesome DJ with Got Dat Entertainment and everyone was dancing to the music. The food was amazing! The best of all we were raising money while having fun.“

2nd place: Steve Laner from Metairie
1st place: Joey Aguzin from Kenner.
