With good fortune comes extra responsibility. Those of us who have been blessed this year with a good job and a little money to spare need to reach out to those who are down on their luck. This year more than ever, a lot of families are struggling through no fault of their own. Of course you have to take care of your own kids and grandkids, but why not do both at the same time?
An annual event called "Holiday Happening" starts Wednesday and runs through November 23rd. More than 140 vendors have set up shop in the Civic Center and tickets cost only $7.
So consider this; that $7 will get you some really neat shopping, but what you may not know is that all the proceeds go to buy food sacks for needy kids in Lubbock.
Wednesday is "Sneak Peek" night. Tickets are $25 and allow attendees to shop from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Then shopping continues 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
