Meridian, Mississippi The Young Professionals of Meridian hosted its seventh annual Beignet Breakfast to raise funds for United Way of East Mississippi.
Last year, YPM raised three thousand dollars for united way. this year, they hope to raise even more. They believe they are on track to do just that.
"We had two dozen pre-orders before 8:30 Friday morning. We really like to give back to the community, and this is a fundraiser that no one does," said Christin Waters, the YPM breakfast chair.
The Young Professionals planned ahead this year for the rainy forecast, and served up the delicious beignets at the Temple Theatre.
