NOTE TIME OF EVENT: 7 P.M. Start; some earlier e-mails said 6 p.m.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 5. The celebration will be held at Hal & Mal's in downtown Jackson, starting at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for individuals and $10 for students. They may be purchased at the door or from one of the recipient organizations.
The event features light appetizers and music by Jewel Bass and These Days. Dress is come-as-you-are: casual to cocktail.
The proceeds raised from the sale of tickets will be divided equally among the selected organizations. So, please share this date with family, friends and associates and encourage them to attend. Not only will it be an evening of fellowship and camaraderie, but also an excellent forum to encouraging diversity. Remember, the larger the crowd, the more funds each organization will receive. So, come and help support the work of these groups.
