This will mark the 10th year of the VOICE Spring Luncheon. To celebrate the milestone, the event has been moved to evening. This year's event is underwritten by Bryan and Nancy Ruez, Navarro Regional Hospital, and Corsicana Kiwanis Club. The “Night Out” will be held at The Cook Center on May 22 with a brief wine reception starting at 5:45 p.m.

“Life is what happens to you while you’re making other plans” will be the theme of the evening, with Suzie Humphreys as the guest speaker. You can find info on her on her website, It is not too late to purchase a table or a seat to enjoy a great dinner and hear Humphreys' inspirational and humorous message.

Dinner service will start shortly after the reception. Dinner will be served at serving stations this year giving the guests a choice of what they

would like to have. There will be a few of the traditional servers (gentlemen from the community) to assist the guests.  Desserts have been donated by Nonnie's Cakes & More, and each guest will receive a special treat from Nonnie.

The event is being catered by Alisia Greer with Affordable Affairs Catering of Corsicana.  

The silent auction will feature a couple of larger items, as well as a twist. “Mystery Gift Boxes” will be offered to guests to purchase.  The boxes will be $20 and $50.  The $20 boxes will have a gift with a value of $15 to 40. The $50 boxes will have a value of $45 to 150, making all auction items a win-win situation. The contents of the boxes were donated by local businesses and individuals and there will be a list of the contents at the event.

Janet Jacobs of the Corsicana Daily Sun and a VOICE Board Member will be the emcee.  

Committee Members are Tresa Darby, chairperson;  Lauri Bass, Gina Dieterichs, Sherry Dowd, Sue Lagomarsino, Amanda Melton, Betsy Stroder, and Debbie Wilson.
