We are SO thrilled to announce that our charity for 2012 has been chosen and confirmed! A portion of the proceeds from Fire & Feast 2012 will go to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta in Yazoo City!
From their website:
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta’s mission is to enable all young people of the Mississippi Delta, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
