The DeWitt County Friendship Center's annual ham and bean dinner and cake auction is this Saturday.
Paula Jiles is the Executive Director of the DeWitt County Friendship Center and indicates the ham and beans dinner and cake auction is their largest fundraiser. Jiles notes they took a different approach to cake sponsorships this year and is thankful for the many local businesses that took part.
Doors will open at 4:30 pm and the dinner will be served from 5-7 pm. The dinner consists of ham and beans, cornbread, cinnamon applesauce, and cake. At 6:15 the cake auction will start with Lance Schmid as auctioneer.
Last year's fundraiser raised over $7,000 and Jiles hopes to build on that this year. She says the funds they raise from the annual event that helps them cover basic expenses they have.
The Ham and Beans dinner is Saturday, March 7 from 5-7 pm with doors opening at 4:30. Tickets are $5 in advance and $6 at the door.
