The popular Hernando, Miss. event benefited the Palmer Home for Children. The organization offers a safe harbor to children who need a home.

Great weathe
Great weather and  a great night in Hernando.
The evening of spirited fun included a silent auction. Auction items included a Green Egg grill, a fishing kayak, beautiful art painted by the children of Palmer Home, $1,000 off full orthodontic treatments, Mississippi River Kings suite tickets, Zoom Teeth Whitening from DeSoto Family Dental Care, 6-month membership to Jane’s Gym for Women with two training sessions, and stays with dinner for two at Gold Strike, Fitzgerald and Sam’s Town Casinos!
Countless volunteer hours were poured into the event that included live music, wonderful food from seven local eateries, plus all the crawfish you could eat — it was a mudbug bash after all!
