Some of the goodies on the dinner menu are street tacos, ragin’ Cajun jambalaya, Kansas City burnt ends, brown sugar bacon brats, a popcorn buffet and a dessert depot.
The fundraising event is being held with the proceeds supporting the purchase of a 3-D mammography machine, which assists with early detection of cancer.
