It's that time of year when the doors open for the annual Wapato High School Bean Feed. It's this Friday evening (Jan. 20) in the school's Commons Area.

And this year, the gathering celebrates a huge milestone -- its 60th year.

The Bean Feed started in 1957 as a fundraiser to help a student battling cancer and every year since then the proceeds have been donated to help fight the cancer battle. It has become a Lower Valley tradition and it's a great event to support.

The 60th Annual Bean Feed runs from 4:30-7 p.m. Friday, and tickets are available at the door. It's $5 for adults and $3 for kids and students. There will also be plenty of student entertainment for you to enjoy during the event.

All Wapato High School alumni are encouraged to attend and everyone is welcome to come enjoy a meal at the Bean Feed and then watch some exciting high school basketball as the Wolves host East Valley.
