The Ascension of Our Lord Knights of Columbus Council 9623 won the East Bank Gumbo Cook-off contest Nov. 13.

Teams from New Orleans to St. John the Baptist Parish had three hours to cook five gallons of chicken sausage gumbo.

Judging was complete by 10:30 a.m. with the help of judges: realtor Lilly Dufrene of Gertrude Gardner Realtors, St. John Clerk of Court Eliana Defrancesch and St. John Sheriff Mike Tregre.

The gumbo was then sold to the public as a fundraiser. Money will help fund Knights of Columbus charity efforts
