Downtown Meridian will have a little New Orleans flair later this week, all for a good cause.
The Young Professionals of Meridian will hold its annual Cafe Dumont this coming Friday morning in Dumont Plaza.
The group will sell New Orleans-style beignets and coffee from 7 a.m. till 11 a.m. for $10 per dozen.
The proceeds will benefit The United Way of East Mississippi.
This is the sixth year for the event.
