Holcombe scholarship Mardi Gras party March 1
The fund was set up in honor of the late Christine “Chris” Holcombe, an extension agent in Milam County for over 30 years and a volunteer in many area civic organizations who passed away last year from breast cancer.
The “Mardi Gras” bash will be held Saturday, March 1 at Simon George Hall, 401 S. Karnes, in Cameron.
The event, which will start at 6 p.m., will include a Cajun food dinner, auctions and games for the kids. Adult tickets are $10 and children under 18 are $5. Tickets may be purchased at the Cameron Chamber of Commerce, The Rockdale Reporter and Rodenbeck Farm & Ranch in Thorndale.
After last year’s event seven scholarships totaling $15,000 were awarded to Milam County residents who are currently in college.
If you would like to donate items to the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop them off at Ideal Poultry in Cameron or The Rockdale Reporter.
