Angling Against Autism

Angling Against Autism is led by Angie and Moonie Bergeron, former Emerge parents and owners of Bergeron’s Boudin & Cajun Meats. This event has benefited Emerge since 2012 and has raised over $350,000 for our center. Since 2017, funds from the event have benefited the J. Arthur Bergeron and Lana Valley Estopinal Scholarship Fund so that more families can access our services.
