The 36th Annual Opportunities, Inc. Autumn Luncheon
The Opportunities, Inc. "Drive-Through" Autumn Luncheon was held on Thursday, November 5th outside the Senior Day Building.
This signature event hosted by the Foundation Board has been held since 1985. While traditionally hosted in a home, extra precautions were taken to make it as safe as possible. The drive-through luncheon included a wonderful box lunch prepared by local Chef Marjorie Slimer, and each box included a recipe card featuring one of her specialty desserts.
Joan Carter and the late Nancy Sandefur founded the Opportunities, Inc. Foundation Board to raise pubic awareness about Opportunities, Inc. and its many programs. This event celebrates the ongoing progress of the organization while raising vital funds to support local children and adults with disabilities in our community.
The event was underwritten by Dolly Dunklin Marting in honor of Mary Jane Orr and Eileen Stearman, and in loving memory of Pat Abernathy. A native of Texarkana, this will always be her hometown. Fundraising on behalf of Texarkana is her passion, and she was inspired by her own grandchildren to support this event.
