Spring Fling is an evening of live music, dancing, good food, and a silent auction benefitting Lutheran Social Services programs on the South Plains: Neighborhood House, Health for Friends Clinic, Wedgewood South Assisted Living, and Foster in Texas.
The lives of thousands in and around Lubbock are personally touched each year by LSS programs. Their success depends on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and businesses sharing their time, talents and resources with the community. Spring Fling is the fundraiser for these services. The evening will include the auction of a guitar signed by George Strait and a raffle for a handmade quilt.
Every year a drawing is held for a beautiful handmade quilt. This year’s quilt is queen size and donated and quilted by Slaton Quilters. Tickets for the quilt raffle are $2 each or for a group of 6 $10.
