'Cruise for Kids' raises money to fight child hunger

The North Little Rock Mayor's Youth Council has teamed up with the Arkansas Queen and Red Lobster to give you an unforgettable evening on Thursday, May 26th. "Cruise for the Kids" will benefit Arkansas Rice Depot's Food For Kids program, a backpack program that sends food home with kids after school. Sadly, Arkansas is #1 in child hunger. Food For Kids helps more than 30,000 children in Arkansas each year.

Guests will board the Arkansas Queen at 6:30pm. The cruise, dinner and a silent auction begin at 7:00pm. The boat returns to dock at 9:00pm.

The dinner menu includes Caesar's Salad, Shrimp Alfredo, Cajun Chicken Alfredo, Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp Skewers, Chilled Jumbo Cocktail Shrimp Appetizer, Rice Pilaf, Corn Relish, Cheddar Bay Biscuits and Key Lime Pie.

Tickets are $30 each, which will feed one child for a month, and can be ordered online, by emailing dani@ricedepot.org or by calling our office at 501.565.8855.
