13th annual Martini Shakedown benefiting Make-A-Wish

Make-A-Wish Mississippi makes dreams come true for children on the Coast suffering from life threatening medical conditions. Now they are asking you to help make those wishes possible.
The organization celebrates the 13th annual Martini Shakedown at the Beau Rivage Casino on Saturday, July 8th. There will be martinis, food, live music, and mobile bidding at this year’s silent auction.
Organizers say there are over 50 children on a waiting list for Make-A-Wish Mississippi and this fundraiser will go toward them. Make-A-Wish of South Mississippi Director Shellie Moses said, “This night is huge. We do two fundraisers that we put on a year down here in South Mississippi and this is one of them and obviously by far it is our largest event. Everybody has a great time. You get to come out, hang out with good friends, your co-workers and family even and you know, have a good time. The main thing is that you’re doing this for a purpose and that purpose is to help our kids in Mississippi have their wishes granted.”
Tickets are $75 and $100 after July 6th. You can contact the Make-A-Wish office at 228-575-8691.
