A Jolly Candyland Celebration

Hundreds of folks from across the Coast gathered at the IP Resort to take part in this year’s annual Bacot McCarty Jolly Reception and Auction.

This year’s theme for the event was a Jolly Candyland with the event room decked out in sweet decorations.

At the reception, guests are able to participate in a silent auction with funds going towards the Bacot Foundation to provide to grant recipients across the Coast.

Executive Director Todd Trenchard says this is something he looks forward to more than anything each year. “Well, I’ve sort of turned it into almost an obsession so that’s what makes it even funner to be able to do this for the community, so I got the best job in the world. This is just awesome.”

Some of the items up for auction included sports memorabilia, house decorations, and even a puppy from the Humane Society of South Mississippi.
