Lobster Dinner this Weekend

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)- The Hope House is building futures full of hope....and they're doing it one lobster at a time.

The yearly lobster dinner is this Sunday evening at Tunk's Cypress Inn.

It is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the hope House, which aids homeless women and children.

Organizers say this year's fundraiser is more important than ever because the money raised will help pay for the new Hope House facility- that will help even more people.

"We have to turn people away- women and children. We can only house about 35 people in here at a time and throughout the year there's as many as 200 we have to say we just don't have room at the end, so this will be a larger location. It's all under one roof," says board president Jim Smolenski.

The event will feature dinner served by celebrity waiters as well as a silent auction. Individual tickets are $75 per person. Group sponsorships are available as well. For more information call 318-487-2061.
