CAMERON—Tickets are selling quickly for the “Mardi Gras” celebration to raise money for the Christine Holcombe Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund has been set up in honor of the late Christine Holcombe, an extension agent in Milam County for over 30 years and a volunteer in many area civic organizations whose life long mission was to help young people get a college education.
The “Mardi Gras” event will be held Saturday, Feb. 9 at Simon George Hall, 401 S. Karnes, in Cameron and will start at 6 p.m. It will include a Cajun food dinner, auctions, door prizes and games for the kids.
There are a limited number of tickets for the event. Adult tickets are $10 and children under 18 are $5. Beer, margaritas and wine are included in the ticket price. Tickets may be purchased at The Rockdale Reporter, the Cameron Chamber of Commerce, Anderle’s Lumber Company, Denio’s Furniture and Rodenbeck Farm & Ranch in Thorndale.
A Willie Nelson signed Telecaster guitar which includes a certificate of authenticity will be the featured item in a live/ phone auction. If you can’t attend the Mardi Gras event and are interested in participating in the phone auction for Willie’s guitar please send your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be called at 8 p.m. on the night of the event so that everyone has an opportunity to bid on this treasure. Photos are available on the Chris Holcombe Memorial Scholarship Fund Facebook page.
