Local Celebrities Gather for Moonlight & Magnolias Event

Saturday night, some local celebrities danced for a good cause. It’s all part the 7th Annual Moonlight and Magnolias, a fundraising event for the South Mississippi Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The event began Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Magnolia Ballroom at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino. Along with the dancing, there was a silent auction for a number of items, including an autographed Drew Brees Saints jersey. All proceeds go to support the American Red Cross South Misissippi Chapter.

Mary Cracchiolo Spain with the Beau Rivage says, “Beau Rivage has supported this event from the beginning. Even prior to Moonlight, we’ve always been a big sponsor of Red Cross, so we really look forward to it. All of our departments come together. There’s no event quite like it on the Coast, a little mini Dancing with the Stars, if you will, with local celebrities and we have a really nice lineup this year, and should be a lot of fun.”

The Red Cross hopes to raise $75,000 to $100,000 at the event.
