On Thursday folks get the chance to support the Newman Regional Health Denim and Diamonds event through a sit-down meal.
Coach's Grill and Bar is hosting "Dine for Denim and Diamonds" all day. A portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the main event. Organizer Jodi Heerman says it's a win-win.
Denim and Diamonds events have been expanding recently, and Heerman says it's an attempt to give people more options to support the cause.
The actual Denim and Diamonds event is Aug. 1 at Webb Hall. Cost is $60 for individuals or $100 for couples. The event includes hors d'oeuvres, a live and silent auction and a dance -- as well as opportunities to win a one-carat blue-and-white diamond pendant fro Kari's Diamonds and Bridal worth almost $7,000. Suggested donations are $10 for one chance or $25 for three.
