The Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi announced its plans for this year's "Celebration of Excellence."
The event will be Sept. 13 at 6:00 p.m. at the Frank Cochran Center in Meridian.
Newly-elected Jackson Mayor Frank Melton will be the keynote speaker.
"If the Celebration of Excellence is a success, we will get the opportunity to provide more quality services for our children, for after-school and summer programs," said Executive Director Ricky Hood. "We are excited about the opportunity to do the event."
The Celebration of Excellence is the organization's only major fundraiser of the year. Individual tickets are $100 each, or you may reserve a table for $1,000.
