The Berry Queens was started and continues to be the dominant force in the fund and fun raising for Iberia Habitat for Humanity. You can not attend many community events that you don't see at least one or two of our Berry Queen members lending a hand being fabulous, wigged and unwigged.
We are warriors of World Peace, superhero women minus the cape and the golden lasso- we are fierce~ we are light~ we are living / breathing examples of the Golden Rule. Spreaders of World Peace in our little corner of the universe.
"The Berry Queens, whose showy appearance and zany theatrics have won the hearts of many in the community, have been selected recipient of the 2015 Citizen of the Year Award. The award is not for the frolicking fun seen at many events in which they participate but for their dedication to building up the community through their main cause — Habitat for Humanity — by raising enough money to help families buy a home of their own, when they might be otherwise unable."

The Berry Queens was created by Head Boss Queen Jerre Borland as an innovative way to raise funds for Iberia Habitat for Humanity.
Although the Berry Queen Ball is the biggest fundraiser for the organization, there are several other events through out the year. The funds raised allows the dream of homeownership a reality for citizens in Iberia Parish.
