Corsicana — Red Hot and Retro Prom is being held by the Blooming Grove Volunteer Fire Department, and costumes are strongly encouraged for the Feb. 16 event.

The third annual fundraiser ball is themed “Hillbilly Ball,” and party-goers are urged to pull together their finest “Duck Dynasty,” redneck, hillbilly finest for the occasion. There will be lots of fun, food and frolic, as well as a costume contest and silent auction.

“Our Volunteer Fire Department is greatly in need of a new computer, in order to file all of our data reports with the state,” said Eva Marshall, event organizer. “Also, due to a group of new recruits, we are in need of several new pagers. Both of these needs are vital to the VFD being able to provide our community with the best fire and rescue services available.”

Tickets are available, or you may purchase an entire table for $100. The event will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 16 at Star Hall in Corsicana. For more information, call (903) 875-8603.
