A special event to raise funds for the Mary Jane Eubank memorial scholarship fund will take place Saturday at Oma’s Jiffy Burger, 403 Water St.
The project was initiated by 9-year-old Northside Elementary students Jimmy Mismash and Jackson Leath as an effort to help honor the Waxahachie booster and friend of youth who passed away Nov. 30.
The boys began the effort by collecting donations from friends and classmates for the scholarship fund before asking Oma’s owner Jimmy Poarch for assistance.
Poarch was so taken with the idea he has offered to donate 10 percent of all restaurant sales from 7 a.m. until closing on Saturday to the scholarship fund.
Mismash and Leath, along with many of their classmates, will be on hand Saturday helping out in the restaurant.
