Raffle to help with medical expenses for Brandon families

While preparing for next week’s Suburban Digest briefs, I came across this link from the Flowood Chamber of Commerce about 31 Days of Thirty One raffle and it caught my eye. Take a look at this screen grab of the link to learn more about the Weir and Blackwell families that have unexpected, costly medical bills.

The organizers need help spreading the word, so I hope this post and brief in next Thursday’s edition will inspire someone to buy a ticket for a chance at some cool prizes!

Feel free to share this post, too. 🙂

Mississippi College athletes raise funds to fight cancer

Some good news submitted by Mississippi College: SClintonFundraisertudent-athletes are helping collect spare change at Choctaws hoops games Thursday night January 31 and  Saturday afternoon Feb. 2 at the Golden Dome to raise money to combat cancer. It’s part of an effort throughout the American Southwest Conference to raise money to support good causes. Pictured are: Connor Neuman of Houston, Texas, a graduate assistant with the men’s basketball team; MC cheerleader and track team member Morgan Tynes of Waynesboro, and MC Lady Choctaws softball player Catherine Brand of Hickory. The three MC students began collecting funds at the Christian university’s cafeteria on Wednesday.

Kudos to these students for their efforts! I can’t wait to see how much they collect.
