2011 Culinary Canvas is "Hooked on a Feeling" to End Hunger in West Texas October 4, 2011

MIDLAND- OCT. 4, 2011—The West Texas Food Bank is pleased to announce that Culinary Canvas, the annual gala fundraising event with dancing, auctions and food presented by Western National Bank and CBS-7, will be held at 6:30 PM Thursday October 20, 2011 at the Commemorative Air Force Museum’s Main Hangar, 6400 Wright Drive, Midland. The event brings together generous people, good food, world-class entertainment and live and silent auctions to help alleviate hunger in West Texas.

The evening includes an opportunity for each of the events patrons to sample outstanding culinary creations prepared by the area’s best restaurants and bakers (full list below). Following the food sampling is an exciting live auction with prizes including sixth-row Dallas Mavericks tickets, a complete travel package to Big Bend, spa packages, electronics and more.

We are also excited to announce that this year’s event will feature a live performance by five-time Grammy Award and Academy Award winner B.J. Thomas (“Hooked on a Feeling,” “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “Suspicious Minds” and others). The proceeds from the event support West Texas Food Bank in their mission to feed the 60,000 individuals they serve each month, half of which are children and the elderly.

Table Sponsorships are available. Individual tickets are available for $50 each and can be purchased on the West Texas Food Bank’s homepage, www.wtxfoodbank.org, or at any Western National Bank location in Midland or Odessa and at H-E-B in Odessa.
