The 19th annual Bramlett Beans & Cornbread luncheon was held Thursday at the Southwest Community Center.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Christmas Basket program, a volunteer effort by the Cities of Texarkana, Texas and Texarkana, Arkansas and Texarkana Water Utilities that provides holiday food for families in need who reside in the Texarkana area.
Lunch included beans and cornbread, sponsored by Big Jake’s BBQ and Texarkana Independent School District, sodas sponsored by Coca Cola and coffee and dessert sponsored by Starbucks.
Organizer James Bramlett said, “We have one of the most giving and caring communities around and this is just true evidence of each and every year of how our numbers grow, people coming out and supporting those families in need. We couldn’t do it without their help.”
