MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Hundreds of people came out to Key Field Thursday night to support the Navy League with plenty of food, music and planes.
Wings and Tails is the Navy League's biggest fundraiser of the year. Guests enjoyed live music, an antique car show and a shrimp dinner, sponsored in part by WTOK. This was the fourth year for the event. Navy League president Eddie Kelly says the turnout was great and he's so thankful for all the support.
"It is going to be something that continues for years to come. It's a great community event, a great family event," Kelly says. "People should come out and enjoy themselves together with us."
The money raised goes to finance morale, welfare and recreation facilities for commissioned ships.
