13th annual Martini Shakedown

Thirteen will be a lucky number during tomorrow night’s 13th annual Martini Shakedown benefiting Make-A-Wish.
Starting at 7 p.m. at the Beau Rivage, you can enjoy martinis, food, and live music from Category 6. This year you can even bid from your mobile device on items such as vacation getaways, jewelry, and celebrity gift packages.
The best part is this event raises the most money for the organization that spends time granting wishes for children with serious medical illnesses. Make-A-Wish South Mississippi Director Shellie Moses said, “We’ve got over 50 kids right now that are waiting on a list with the average wishing cost of $8,500. So this fundraiser is definitely important to us. We’ve had an anonymous donor step forward and said that up to $25,000, any funds that we raise specifically to fund a wish with, will be matched up to $25,000. That is something we are super excited about.”
Tickets are now $100 and even if you can’t make it you can still bid online through Bid Pal.
