Hospice of Lubbock to host 30th annual Mayors' Beans & Cornbread Luncheon

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Hospice of Lubbock’s largest fundraiser of the year, The 30th Annual Mayors’ Beans & Cornbread Luncheon, is upon us. The event is from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

The luncheon is hosted by mayors from all over the South Plains. Hospice of Lubbock serves 19 counties, including Parmer, Bailey, Lamb, Hale, Floyd, Motley, Cochran, Hockley, Lubbock, Crosby, Dickens, Yoakum, Terry, Lynn, Garza, Kent, Gaines, Dawson and Borden. Hospice of Lubbock is the region’s only nonprofit adult and pediatric hospice since 1987.

The funds raised through events like this, help unfunded and under-funded hospice patients and families. This year, on it’s 30th anniversary, Hospice of Lubbock introduced an initiative to create a music therapy program for their patients.

Beans, cornbread, dessert, and drinks are provided by River Smith’s, Dynamic Foods and Nothing Bundt Cakes. A Klemke’s sausage link can be added to the meal for an additional $2. Live music and entertainment will be provided by Caldwell Entertainment and the Cactus Theater.

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.
