What an amazing cause and Shilpan is only too happy to help. On top of that, he was just named the first ever king of the new Krewe of Oceanus, and as Parker Ward pointed out in Shilpan's nomination letter, they couldn't have chosen anyone more deserving.

And just like the new Krewe, we couldn't have chosen anyone more fitting as this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award!

Just look at that nomination letter and you'll see why!

Shilpan is an amazing person. He is the regional manager of Papa John's Pizza. He is also big in the Renesting Project. This helps homeless people transition into permanent housing with household items. He and his wife has served as the first King and Queen for the Krewe of Oceanus. This Krewe benefits the Southern Hills community. Shilpan has participated in trash pick up, giving school supplies to local students, and Christmas gifts for needy kids. I couldn't have asked for a better person to serve as our first king of Oceanus.

Shilpan Patel, thank you for being so amazing! You are a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live! And because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!

Take a listen to the phone call we made to Shilpan to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
