Sold out success … Madison’s on Dowlen was the place to be last Wednesday night, Sept. 12, for the fourth annual Ubi Caritas Date Auction as about 25 lovely young ladies and youthful gentleman took the stage before a crowd eager to do their bidding. Chairs Samantha Richards and Traci Coleman were thrilled at this year’s proceedings from both the silent and live auction.



In the event of major thunderstorms and lightning impacting the Run/Walk at 8:00 a.m. this Saturday, regretfully, we will be forced to cancel the first phase of the event.

However, we will continue inside with the remainder of our celebratory festivities and open the Beaumont Civic Center at 9:30 a.m. for fabulous rhythm and blues singer Yvonne Washington and her band, prior to the bedazzling Richard Simmons show and picnic lunch, beginning at 10:00 a.m.


One of the best Po’boys in Southeast Texas can be found in one of the most unlikely of places.
