Meals on Wheels of Odessa has scheduled the 19th annual Mudbug fundraiser from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday in Barn G at the Ector County Coliseum, 4201 Andrews Highway.
The feast will feature more than 600 pounds of crawfish along with corn, potatoes, shrimp, fish and other Cajun deliciousness that is served all-you-can eat style.
Activities include a live auction, a silent auction and live music. Cash bar will be available.
The food is served up by volunteers and the event helps see that no one goes hungry, Meals on Wheels Odessa Executive Director Margaret Burton said. Mudbug is Meals on Wheels only fundraiser.
Meals on Wheels started with only 12 clients and now they serve more than 268,000 hot and cold meals a year. Many of the clients of Meals on Wheels, Burton said, could not make ends meet without the nonprofit.
