6th Annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Y.M.C.A. John R. Blossman Humanitarian Award Banquet to be Held Oct. 29th

It all begins with community service… that lives are changed. Mrs. Jeanne Luckey is being honored for her lifetime of service to the Mississippi Gulf Coast at the 6th Annual John R. Blossman Humanitarian Award Banquet. John Blossman was a successful businessman and family man who impacted many people throughout the Coast, and this award was created to recognize others who emulate his spirit. On October 29th, 2014, the Beau Rivage will present this event in the Magnolia Ballroom with a 5:30 p.m. cocktail reception and a 6:30 p.m. dinner, auction, and program. Individual tickets are $100 and can be purchased by calling the Y.M.C.A. at (228) 875-5050. Funds raised from this event will go toward Y.M.C.A. financial assistance for children and adults in the Gulf Coast community.

“Many people say the right words, but do not follow with action. Jeanne Luckey lives a life of service to others, and sees no hurdle too difficult to cross. Her passion is people, and we are honored to place her name among the greats who have given so much to help the Gulf Coast,” said Phillip Doiron, Y.M.C.A. President/C.E.O.
