THE Kitchen Annual Fish Fry & Silent Auction

WICHITA FALLS, TX - March 4, 2012 - Fresh fish, tasty "fixin's" and delicious desserts are the menu items for THE Kitchen's annual Fish Fry and Silent Auction.

"We've got great cooks making a delicious meal for our Fish Fry and Silent Auction. Of course that's nothing new, area seniors get a great meal Monday through Friday from Rhy Hogan and her team," said Jackie Hamm, executive director of THE Kitchen. "The difference for the evening of March 23 is that the entire community gets to have a taste!"

The Annual Fish Fry and Silent Auction is Friday, March 23 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Red Door Center at 1000 Burnett in downtown Wichita Falls. It's an all you can eat affair complete with fresh, hand breaded fish, beans, coleslaw, hushpuppies and the extras such as onions, pickles and, for those brave few, peppers. The meal is rounded out with fresh brewed iced tea and one of more than four dessert choices. Desserts include coconut crème cake, strawberry cobbler, pecan cobbler and ice cream.
Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for children aged 3 to 12. Tickets are available at the door. Call in and carry out is an option if you can't stay. Just call 322-6232 to place your order Friday, March 23 between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

The silent auction runs during the hours of the fish fry and includes interesting and unique items such tickets for four to a Dallas Cowboys game, an autographed Wildcats hockey jersey, tickets to attractions in San Antonio, the Metroplex and right here in Wichita Falls. For those who want to discover the kind of funds needed to operate THE Kitchen, they'll have a chance to see that information first hand and provide the funds to cover some of those costs.
March For Meals is a national campaign, initiated and sponsored by Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA), to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of the local community. This national movement comes at a good time, as recent MOWAA research studies have revealed that the problem of senior hunger in American is indeed growing worse. Currently, one in nine seniors is at risk of hunger in the United States.
