Local celebrity, CADIE Calhoun, in association with Salted South Productions, to host a holiday concert fundraiser on Dec. 9 at Brewsky’s in Hattiesburg, Miss., to benefit Hub City Service Dogs.
Hub City Service Dogs is a nonprofit organization that trains and provides service dogs to individuals with disabilities and special medical needs in the Pine Belt region. The organization relies on fundraisers, grants, and private donations to significantly reduce the cost of the service dog and specialized training for their clients. Last year’s Jolly Jamboree raised over $10,000 for the organization.
The second annual Jolly Jamboree is a holiday spectacular featuring live music, a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, and cocktails. Guests will enjoy holiday music from CADIE Calhoun and local artist Sam Donald. All proceeds from the event will benefit Hub City Service Dogs.
“We enjoy any opportunity to gain support for Hub City Service Dogs,” said executive director Angela Davis-Morris. “The Jolly Jamboree is a great addition to all the exciting holiday happenings in Hattiesburg during the month of December. This event is the perfect way to kick-off a month of festivities while giving back to a great organization!”
The Jolly Jamboree will begin at 6:30pm on Dec. 9 at Brewsky’s. Doors open at 5:30pm. General admission is $30. Guests can purchase VIP tables from $300-$1,200.
VIP tickets include 2 drink vouchers, exclusive VIP viewing area, table service, SWAG bags, and meet and greet with CADIE. To purchase tickets, visit www.hubcityservicedogs.org/donate
