Parents and loved ones of Mexia High School graduating seniors have been planning for months a graduation celebration their seniors will never forget – and they’ve got a fundraiser dinner that at least one attendee will likely not forget either.

The group is called Operation Graduation, and their fundraiser is called the $10,000 Dinner because each person who pays the $100 ticket to attend will be entered in a drawing, and one person will go home with the $10,000 prize.

To make the odds better, only 249 tickets will be sold, and they are available now. To make things even more interesting, one additional ticket is being held back for a second-chance drawing.

The $10,000 dinner will be held Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. at The Cowboy Club, on Hwy 14 just south of Mexia.
