LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Get your denim and diamonds ready ladies because the Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin has a nice treat for you this year at their 9th annual Denim and Diamonds banquet.

"You can go out. You don't have to dress up too fancy, if you want to be casual that's why we wanted to do the denim and diamonds to raise money for the Pregnancy Help Center here in Lufkin," said board member Gloria McDonald.

This year, Anita Renfroe, the comedian who brought the "mom song" to life will be the guest speaker.

"She's awesome. She is going to be a huge treat to the Lufkin area. If you haven't seen her or heard of her Google the 'mom song'. Basically, it's a four minute song that a mom says to a child [over] 24 hours. It's hilarious," McDonald said.

McDonald says this year's event is really exciting especially since the banquet is the center's biggest fundraising event.

"Anita is not the big draw--the big draw is for people to actually see what we do...why we do it and just put it in their heart and just hopefully they want to donate," McDonald said.

The event is Tuesday, November 12 at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center in Lufkin. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the program starts at 6:30 p.m. McDonald says most of the tickets are sold out, but there are still some left for $35. If you would like to be a table sponsor, you can buy a table for $500.
