DURANT, OK -- Hundreds gathered for a Hawaiian themed celebration Thursday, to promote tourism and preservation for Lake Texoma.
Tonight was the Lake Texoma Association's 22nd annual Bash for Cash fundraiser. Guests enjoyed live music, an auction and dinner at the Choctaw Resort and Casino.
Organizers say this event helps the association continue to protect Lake Texoma.
"Lake Texoma is an economic engine for this area. So, of course the more interest that we can get in Lake Texoma the more business we're going to get to our area. So, of course that's a critical part of our mission," executive director Shelly Morgan said.
The association hopes tonight's event raises more than $50,000.
