Terry and Talayna Worth are hosting a fundraising dinner for the Black Diamond Community Center’s Before and After School Kids (BASK) program Saturday at the Black Diamond Eagles, 32618 Railroad Ave.

Talayna Worth said their 8-year-old son attends the after school program and they absolutley love Helen Bittner who runs the program. “She does such amazing things for the children and we could not think of a better way to thank her than giving her the money we raise to use for the program,” Worth said.

The evening will start with grilled Willapa Bay oysters on the half shell and cocktails between 5 to 6 p.m., followed by smoked, baby back ribs from Black Diamond’s Frank’s Meats, corn on the cob, cowboy baked beans, coleslaw and cornbread from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Raffles, music and dancing to a live band close out the evening’s festivities.
