It's almost that time again! The 28th annual Mayors Beans and Cornbread Lunch is scheduled for March 3rd at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

This year’s fundraising event is set to benefit Hospice of the South Plains.

From Hospice of the South Plains:

This fundraising event raises money for Hospice of Lubbock’s non-funded and under-funded hospice patients and families, Grief Recovery Center and Children’s Grief Camp each summer. Hospice of Lubbock is the region’s only nonprofit adult and pediatric hospice since 1987.

River Smith's will prepare and serve several hundred pounds of food including beans, cornbread, and all the fixings. They are expecting to feed over 2,000 people this year. They will also have Klemke sausage for sale, as well as other great items.

Luncheon tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the door or by calling either Hospice of Lubbock at (806) 795-2751 or the Covenant Foundation at (806) 725-6020.
