The 29th Annual Mayors' Beans & Cornbread Luncheon, the largest fundraiser of the year for Hospice of Lubbock, will take place from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 2 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Banquet Hall.

Dan Pope, Mayor of Lubbock said "This is one of the most special events I participate in each year. Hospice of Lubbock's mission is to care for and give comfort to all, without exception. This event honors those families who have received the compassion that is shared by the caregivers and volunteers of Hospice of Lubbock."
