An ‘Act of Kindness’ benefit to help Paris ISD police officerKyle Martin who is currently battling cancer, has been set for Saturday, Feb. 19 and will feature a chili cook-off, live and silent auction, food trucks and a dance show. 

“We decided to do this benefit as an act of kindness and to ‘back the blue,'” said the owner of Revive Dance, Britney Drake. “We do a fundraiser every year for acts of kindness to teach our kids to give back to their community. We decided to put on a show where people will pay five dollars to get in, no matter the age, to help raise money for Kyle Martin. My dancers are performing all of their competition dances that they perform throughout the year.”  

The ‘Act of Kindness’ benefit, organized by Revive Dance & Performing Arts in Paris, will be held at the Paris Junior High Theatre from 5 – 8 p.m. with the chili cook-off starting at midday. 

Those wishing to enter the chili cook-off can contact Joey McCarthy at 903-715-8520. The entry fee is $25 and there will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies plus a people’s choice. 

Revive will be performing two times. 6 p.m. till 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. till 8:15 p.m. The silent auction will be open from 5 – 7:30 p.m. and the live auction will be at 7 p.m. Food trucks will be open from 6 – 8:15 p.m.
