Hundreds Prepare for 'A Night Under the Big Top'

by Ramonica R. Jones

It'll be a night under the big top Saturday in Lufkin.  The Junior League of Lufkin is getting ready for its biggest fundraiser of the year.

It's the 29th year the league has hosted 'A Night Under the Big Top'.  Proceeds from the charity ball go toward helping the league perform projects and community service activities throughout Lufkin.  Hundreds of folks are expected to show up for dinner and dancing.  They're in for a real treat.

Chairperson Greta Rich said, "We are having a live auction this year.  We have severay trips that we're auctioning off.  We have our silent auction, which is traditional for us."

'A Night Under the Big Top' starts at 7 Saturday night at the Lufkin civic center. Last year, the league raised more than $40,000.
