Cenac Towing and Son Rise Music Fest

Cenac Towing and Son Rise Music Fest

 The Benny Cenac Towing Company was so proud to participate in the third annual Son Rise Christian Music FestThe event took place on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at the Lafourche Central Market Pavilion in Mathews, Louisiana. The day was full of family fun, musical praise and worship and for some that attended, life changing events.  The Son Rise Christian Music Fest was created to celebrate the common belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, bringing the various Christian faiths of the area together through the common love of music! This year’s Son Rise Christian Music Fest was brought to you by Cenac Marine Services, LLC of Houma, LA and Lift 3:16, Inc., a nonprofit based in Houma.

Benny Cenac, owner of Cenac Marine Services and local entrepreneur, knew immediately he wanted to help bring Son Rise Music Fest to the area when he heard of its mission.  He is no stranger to philanthropy and frequently gives back to his community by donating to several events and programs that help to enrich the lives of us and our neighbors. The Cenac Towing Company also participated in the event last year.  Seeing its success and the impact it had on the community made it that much more important for the Houma based entrepreneur and his team to support the Son Rise Music Fest efforts.

Throughout the day, the community was brought together with a variety of dynamic musicians from South Louisiana. The day kicked off with the Cajun Music band, L.A. Rose at 8:45am which was a great way to start the morning for many South Louisianians who love to Cajun dance! The Cajun music was followed by a Christian worship band led by Dr. Karl Haydel then the Gospel group, 3MC! Throughout the rest of the day, Christian Rock bands Like Giants and Empowered, as well as a rap group K. Levy & The Legends  rocked the stage and kept all attendees on their feet! The events of the day culminated a huge praise & worship session led by More Than Sunday  featuring a number of the musicians who played throughout the day.

The Son Rise Christian Music Fest was a free event and open to all ages. Food booths offered a variety of small meals and snacks throughout the day that were also available to guests. The craft vendors selling their goods to attendees were kept busy as many people stopped by each booth.  The Mario Kart Tournament for ages 4-12 was a huge success as the winners were awarded Chik-fil-A gift cards to 1st and 2nd place winners for each round of the tournament, with a new tournament that started every hour on the hour. It is safe to say the entire day was full of fun, happiness, joy and a HUGE success.

Mr. Benny Cenac, of Cenac Marine Services prides himself, his company, and his employees in their philanthropic and helpful volunteer endeavors and this festival was a perfect way for them to serve that purpose. Not only is the mission of Son Rise Music Festival to help bring the love of God to the community of Houma but they were also mandated as a drop off point for Hurricane relief supplies. This is a perfect example of the selfless and helpful spirits we are blessed to interact with as we look back on our experience at the third annual Son Rise Christian Music Festival.
