Is Blackjack your game? Or how about 5-Card Stud? Maybe you like Crazy 8s. No matter what your favorite card game, you’ll want to attend one of the best parties of the year.

The 4th annual Black Out Cancer fundraiser event is slated for Saturday, March 11 at 8 p.m. Black Out will once again be held at The Opera House in downtown Humboldt. Proceeds from the event go to Relay for Life.

The theme this year is, “Play the Game, Find the Cure”. Playing cards will be on each table so everyone can have a friendly game of their favorite card games.

Highlighting the evening will be entertainment by the Kimberlie Helton Band. Helton and the guys are known throughout West Tennessee as one of the best party bands playing a variety of dance music. During the breaks, local DJ Charles Perry will keep the party going.

Kimberlie Helton will perform again at this year’s Relay for Life Black Out Cancer event.

Those attending are asked to wear “black”. You can dress up or dress down as long as you wear black—from a tux or evening gown to black jeans and a t-shirt. Wearing black is not mandatory but having fun is, all for a very worthy cause.

There will be light finger foods and beverages.

Tickets are $40 single, $75 for a pair or $280 for a table of eight. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. so come early to get a prime seat.

Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society are at the forefront of fighting cancer. Cancer does not discriminate. It attacks young and old, sick and healthy, rich and poor, and all races. Practically everyone knows someone who suffered from this dreaded disease and survived. But unfortunately, almost everyone knows someone who lost the battle with cancer.

Come out and have a good time, dining, dancing and listen to some great live music and DJ. Support Relay for Life and help find a cure.
