Edgar& Jake Assist Island Aid Benefit Concert

Edgar Hansen and Jake Anderson of the F/V Northwestern participated in the Island Aid Benefit Concert on Saturday, July 24, in Grand Isle, LA and greeted over 10,000 fans who waited in line for autographs and photos.  The event raised $20,000 which will aid in rebuilding the struggling fishing and tourism industry of Grand Isle.  Joining Edgar and Jake in raising money for the cause were entertainment acts such as Three Dog Night, LeAnn Rimes, Little Rover Band, Doug Kershaw and more!!

Island Aid was in lieu of the famous Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo, which was canceled this year due to the devastating gulf oil spill.
