Red Cross 9th Annual Evening of Jazz set for January 23

Plans are underway for An Evening of Jazz, the annual fundraiser supporting the humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross of North Mississippi and directly benefitting individuals and families in need. The event will be held from 7-10 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 23, at The BancorpSouth Conference Center.

The evening features a food buffet, an amazing silent auction, and great music from the five-member, Mississippi-based band, Cruise Control. More than your typical live band, the variety of their music will have you up and dancing all night. You won’t want to miss it!

“We are only able to carry out our mission because of the generous support of our donors and the community. Supporting An Evening of Jazz by being a sponsor or purchasing tickets is the perfect opportunity for people to support our local Red Cross while enjoying a fun-filled evening of food and great entertainment,” said Patty Tucker, executive director of the American Red Cross of North Mississippi.

Event sponsorships from $500 to $10,000 are still available and offer an excellent opportunity for an organization to show its support of the Red Cross and be recognized as a community partner. Individual tickets are $50. For sponsorships, ticket and event information, call 662-842-6101 or email

Proceeds from the event support the American Red Cross of North Mississippi which serves the 31 counties comprising the northern third of the state.
