Hospice of Texarkana's "Jeans & Bling" fundraiser is scheduled for 7 p.m., October 12 at the Texarkana Convention Center.
The event will feature the Texas Unlimited Band, a Texas bar-b-q buffet, raffles, a huge silent auction and a lip sync competition.
Tickets are $60 for the adult event and the music, performances, food and two drink tickets.
"In nine years, we have cleared $465,000 which has been used to pay down the note of the Hospice of Texarkana Care Center which is the only one of its kind within 75-miles," said Stefanie Brazile, director of development and public relations. "We are grateful for the community's support of this nonprofit agency and our only fundraising event. Last year, 295 seriously ill people from this area received care at the unique facility."
A crowd favorite is the Lip Sync Battle that will begin at 8 p.m. and features these local celebrities in costumes doing dance routines: Whitney Long and team from Twin City Cheer; John Ross and Lisa Shoalmire of Ross & Shoalmire; and, Power 95-9 Deejay Wes, with Kicker 102.5 Deejays Jim and Lisa, along with station manager Brian Sines.
The event is hosted by Shorty and Stephanie Barrett and will be emceed by Kicker 102.5 Deejay Mario Garcia.
"Part of what draws attendees is the meaningful cause they are helping and I think others love that men can wear their jeans or pressed khakis, button downs and hats, if desired," Brazile said. "For the ladies, it's western chic which encompasses jeans, skirts or cute dresses with heels or boots. Adding blingy jewelry is a must."
Tickets go on sale Monday at www.HospiceofTexarkana.org or at the care center, 2407 Galleria Oaks Drive, Texarkana, Texas. You do not have to attend to purchase a $20 Raffle ticket and information will be available at the website or Facebook page: "Jeans & Bling Annual Benefit." Donations are appreciated and can be given online, by mail or in person. For more information call Brazile at 903-794-4263.
