The Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Mississippi is hoping to land the big one during its annual fall fundraiser.

Food will be the club's bait as it plans to hold its 8th Annual Catfish & Khakis on Tuesday at the corner of Fillmore Street and Cruise.

The club's top fundraiser gives individuals a choice of fish or chicken to go along with hushpuppies, fries, slaw, cookie and a drink. Tickets are $10 for the 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. event and can be purchased on the day of the luncheon.

Attendees can dine-in or take-out.

"It started just to keep our name out in the public," said David Roberts, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Northeast Mississippi. "Now it has turned into a really big event."

Proceeds from the luncheon are slated to go back into the club fund to support its many after school programs.

"Catfish & Khakis is the biggest fundraiser we have," said Corinth Unit Director Christy Grice. "It's a great community event that allows the public to come out and see what all goes on at the club."

Club board members play a big role during the annual event, according to Grice.

"They come out and give their full support," she said. "The board and community supporters all take time from their busy day to help out."

Grice is using the occasion to get the word out about the club through a catchy design. The unit director has made sailboats with the club's mission and other things listed on each side of the sail. The neat craft will be put on each table, giving those who dine-in a chance to learn facts regarding the club.
