The 32nd Annual Mayors' Bean & Cornbread Luncheon benefitting Hospice of Lubbock will happen this year, with some changes, on Friday, March 5. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is the largest fundraiser for Hospice of Lubbock.

Normally, this event is held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, everyone sitting together indoors will not be happening this year. However, instead of cancelling the event, Hospice of Lubbock is making this year's event a drive-thru event in the new parking lot of the YWCA facility at 66th and University.

The Mayors' Beans & Cornbread Luncheon has been Hospice of Lubbock's major opportunity to raise money that helps to provide free hospice care to the "unfunded and underfunded" in the Lubbock area. Hospice of Lubbock is the regions only faith-based non-profit hospice care that is available to adults and children.

“COVID-19 provided us with many challenges, both with hospice care and our Beans & Cornbread luncheon,” Hospice of Lubbock Director Dr. Jeremy Brown said. “We are sad to have to put some of our favorite traditions on hold this year, but we are thankful to the YWCA for their partnership and are excited to create new memories. We appreciate everyone who has continued to support Hospice of Lubbock through this difficult year.”

Tickets for the event remain just $10 and can be purchased here or by calling Hospice of Lubbock at 806-795-2751. Or you could call Covenant Health Foundation at 806-725-6089. To pre-place an order for 10 or more call 806-503-9404.

Those attending on March 5 are asked to enter the YWCA parking lot on the south side of the building off 66th and University.
