Wichita Falls residents gathered on the east side Saturday to honor black history month and raise some money for a good cause.
The soul food extravaganza kicked off this morning with a variety of all you can eat dishes.
The event was put on by the local Federation of Women's club.
All the money raised goes towards fixing up the Booker T. Washington alumni building downtown.
Organizers say it's important to keep the legacy of the club alive so future generations can understand how far they've come.
“To know our heritage, keep our heritage going, keep what our fore parents brought us through with this club and to keep it going and going and going on,” says President of Federation of Women's Club President, Gwendolyn Mitchell.
Organizers are hoping to raise money to make general repairs to the alumni building including a new roof and cracks in the floor.
