Bishop’s ball tickets going fast

JACKSON – Tickets are still available for the ninth annual Catholic Charities Bishop’s Ball set for Friday, June 27, beginning with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. at the Country Club of Jackson.
“Please join us as we welcome Bishop Joseph Kopacz in his first year in the Jackson diocese,” said Jennifer Kelemen, a development assistant at Catholic Charities.
Pat and Alexander Malouf of Greenwood and Carol and James Cooper of Madison will be honored with the Samaritan Award for their relentless support of the Catholic Charities’ mission.
“Guests will enjoy a delectable dinner and will be entertained by sounds of The Red Hots,” said Kelemen.
A live auction will feature a trip to Europe donated by Proximo Travel, a beautiful cabinet by John Richard Furniture, a five night stay at the Orange Beach Resort, and a Greg Harkins chair. The silent auction will feature many pieces of art, decorative items from John Richard Furniture, jewelry and gift cards.
“Don’t forget the fabulous raffle packages including ‘All About Me,’ ‘Made in Mississippi’ and ‘Family Fun Time’ to name a few. You can check out our facebook page to see a preview of some of the items we are offering,” said Kelemen.
The Bishop’s Ball is Catholic Charities’ premier fundraising event, raising much-needed funds for programs including adoption, therapeutic crisis centers, foster care and domestic violence programs. Purchase tickets online at or call Jennifer Kelemen, 601-326-3758.
