Now that the Christmas season has officially started it's also the season of giving. There is a great way to give back to the community and also enjoy great food with one of  Texarkana's tastiest events. It's the Annual Bramlett Beans and Cornbread fundraiser this Thursday, December 2. 

This year it's being held at a new location, the Texarkana Convention Center located at 2910 South Cowhorn Creek Loop in Texarkana Texas from 11AM to 1PM.
