The committee members include Delores Eddings, Ellen McClelland, Pastor Hardy O’Neal, Deacon Ron Eddings, Kaneesha Bellow, Faye Kirklin and Joyce Joubert.

The community is invited to attend and can purchase tickets to enter and taste the different types of foods prepared by these men.

Admission is $25 for adults and $10 for children 10 and under.

The event benefits the youth ministry, aiding them in assistance needed to purchase school supplies.

“The members of St. James have gone to great lengths to prepare for this big event,” church leaders said. We’re are asking our community to support this cause. Tickets may be purchased at the door and can also be purchased in advance. Please contact Pastor Hardy O’Neal at 409-920-2902 for more information.”
