Foxtrot Collection Clothing Co. to Host Fundraiser for Hurricane Victims on Tuesday

Silas Reed, formerly of Silas Reed and the Books, will be among the performers at tomorrow’s fundraiser for hurricane victims.

Oxford musicians Bill Perry and Silas Reed will be among the performers at a fundraiser to benefit hurricane victims on Tuesday.
The Storytellers of Jackson will also perform at the event, called “I Am Because We Are,” which will be presented by Foxtrot Collection Clothing Co. at 7 p.m., Tuesday, November 7, at the Courtyard Marriott’s Green Roof Lounge. In the event of inclement weather, the event will move to the hotel’s ballroom.
Tickets cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door. For every ticket sold, a veteran will receive a free ticket.
All proceeds will be donated to Americares, a nonprofit working to help communities impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
“We were wanting to give some type of aid for the hurricane victims because we have brothers-in-arm with boots on the ground that are out there helping,” said Brandon McClellan, CEO and co-founder of Foxtrot Collection and a military veteran and National Guard member himself.
“The Courtyard Marriott donated the venue, and we got some counseling from the Oxford Chamber of Commerce—they said, ‘If y’all think you can pull it off in a month, go for it.’ So we’ve been constantly working to put it all together and have met our goal.”
The fundraiser also includes a silent auction, a three-hour cash bar and hors d’oeuvres. Brian Foster, an assistant professor of sociology and southern studies at Ole Miss, will act as host and emcee of the event.
