The Hopkinsville Junior Auxiliary held their Taster’s Luncheon fundraiser Friday, October 14, 2016 at Southside Church of Christ.
The community event not only raises funds, but also is a way for the ladies of the auxiliary to show of their cooking skills. The ladies of the JA bring in their favorite dishes to share with the community. The funds raised during the JA Taster’s Luncheon go to support their mission.
The Hopkinsville Junior Auxiliary was founded on the premise of giving back to the community. Through various fundraisers, the JA is able to support their mission and assist local non-profit and community organizations.
Nearly 250 people attended the luncheon with the option to dine-in or carryout. Several patrons chose both options, taking to-go boxes as they left.
The JA has several fundraisers throughout the year such as the Relay For Life, Parade Of Pennies, Charity Ball, fair booth and service projects. They also participate in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, volunteer every year at the Rotary Auction, compete in the annual Chili Cook-Off and much more. Every month the ladies of the JA volunteer throughout the community, serving at Salvation Army, Chapel House, Christian Health Center, Covington’s Friendship House, Pennyrile Homes and Morningside Assisted Living.
