the Corsicana Visitor Center, located at 301 S. Beaton Street.. The 175th Birthday Gala will feature live entertainment, dining, dancing, and fundraising. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and guests can browse the live auction with many unique items. In addition, there will be a chance to win a diamond valued at $5,000, made possible by Van’s Jewelers.
