Musicians with a Mission Fundraiser
To keep their mission of transforming lives going strong, Back Bay Mission held their fourth annual fundraising event Musicians with a Mission.
The night consisted of live jazz and dueling pianos to get the party started off right. South Mississippians packed the Hard Rock Live, ready to help give back to the community by taking part in the silent auctions, a spin 2 win game, and raffles.
Back Bay Mission Executive Director Alice Graham tells News 25 proceeds from the event will go to support the mission’s client sustainability campaign. “It’s basically unjust to just to hand out. So, what we want to do is to build a relationship with our clients in such a way that they will trust us to support them and accessing resources. So, that’s this program, this fundraiser helps support all of those programs.”
Graham says last year’s goal was one hundred thousand dollars and now they hope to exceed that limit and raise one million dollars from this event.
