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. 🙂

Media Giants defeat Gov. Bryant’s Phillies, but the real winner is Mustard Seed

Media Giants defeat Gov. Bryant's Phillies, but the real winner is Mustard Seed

The Media Giants defeated Gov. Phil Bryant’s Phillies 13 to 5 in the 2013 Home Run for Mustard Seed at Trustmark Park last week. The annual charity softball game on August 7 raised hundreds of dollars and promoted awareness for the non-profit in Rankin County serving special needs adults. The Media Giants players are pictured in the outfield at the home of the Mississippi Braves in Pearl following their first win over the Governor’s Team since 2006.
