BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A small mess resulted in a big donation to a local non-profit.
NBC33's Jeanne Burns, Kris Cusanza, Alex Deiro, and FOX44's Britt Conway teamed up to win the grape stomping event at this year's Columbus Day Festa.
The Festa is an annual celebration hosted by the Greater Baton Rouge American Italian Association.
Their choreographed performance was good enough to beat the other local TV stations, as well as teams from Visit Baton Rouge and the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino, based on judge's votes and audience applause.
The victory was worth $1,000 to the team's charity, Baton Rouge Youth Coalition. NBC33 won the event in 2011, as well.
