Tickets are $17 each and are on sale now at the Suffolk Visitor Center, 524 N. Main St. Proceeds benefit the Pilot Club, which supports research for brain-related diseases and disorders and promotes brain safety and injury prevention. It also supports a number of charitable causes and other nonprofits in the city.

The Queen’s Luncheon names the Peanut Queen and her court for the Suffolk Peanut Festival, which will be held this year from Oct. 10-13. The court includes two girls from each of Suffolk’s five public and private high schools, and the queen is chosen from among them.

The crowning of the queen is followed by a fashion show by local ladies.
