Sponsorships Sought For Benefit Crawfish Boil

The Flowood Chamber of Commerce sent out the following email about an upcoming crawfish boil to benefit a local family:

The Flowood Young Professional Committee provides an opportunity for young business people to interact socially, exchange ideas of common interest and gain an awareness of Flowood's business climate. As a way to give back to the community, this volunteer group hosts a service project every quarter.

The Flowood Young Professional Committee's major fundraiser for 2013 is the upcoming Mudbug Bash, planned for Thursday, April 25th at Mudbugs on Old Fannin. For our sponsors, this event will serve as a great platform to your business, where you will meet successful business owners in the area and enjoy delicious crawfish and exciting live entertainment.

A portion of the proceeds of the Mudbug Bash will go to The Moulder Foundation.  On November 30, 2012, Danny Moulder was diagnosed with a brain tumor known as Pineoblastoma. Neither Danny nor Terra, his wife, have been able to work full time since early December. While insurance covers a good portion of the medical treatment, the financial burden is extremely heavy. The Moulders are active members of Pinelake Church.

Presently, the Flowood Young Professionals are seeking sponsorships for the event, at levels from $150 to $500.  Additional information can be obtained from Amanda Carraway at the Flowood Chamber at 601.932.8007.
