Hospice of Texarkana Hosted its 14th Annual Jeans & Bling Event


Hospice of Texarkana hosted their signature fundraiser, Jeans Bling, last Saturday at the Texarkana, Texas Convention Center. The fun began at 7:00 p.m., and the dress was “Texas chic,” with an added twist this year of western casual black and white attire with a hint of “bling.”

The event was sponsored and made possible in part by KKYR, Wholesale Electric Supply, and the Yates Foundation, along with many more generous supporters.

The raffle choices this year included a $2,500 Room Makeover compliments of Four States Furniture, or a choice of three trips. The trip raffle winner chose between a Grand Canyon Glamping package, a Punta Cana Dominican Republic trip, or a Lake Tahoe getaway.

Funds raised from the event will support the Hospice of Texarkana Inpatient Care Center, which is akin to an intensive care unit for hospice patients but also provides respite for their Caregivers. Donations for the Care Center are appreciated and can be given online, by mail, or in person.
