HandsOn Texarkana is looking for sponsors for its TAPAS and Wine Pairings Dinner slated to take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Oct. 11 at the Collins Home.
"Tickets are not on sale yet (officially), but if someone calls and wants tickets we could make that happen," said Kathey Graves, HandsOn executive director. "We are always looking for sponsors."
Tickets are $100 per person. Chef Jeff Loving will prepare the food, which will be paired with California wines. There will be musical entertainment and a silent auction.
"We hope to raise around $30,000," Graves said. "It's a very popular event we've been having for almost a decade."
The funds raised are used to support the programs of HandsOn Texarkana including its youth volunteer organization, a skilled-parenting program and a support group available to residents of the federal correctional institution, senior transportation and more.
"We only do two fundraisers a year. The Dragon Boat Festival is one and this is the other. The funds raised are used to support the programs HandsOn provides to the community," Graves said.
