Get Your Ticket, Support Your Community
Taste, bid, donate, and enjoy a night out while helping your community. Get your ticket today for Taste of South Mississippi on March 26 to taste samples of well-loved dishes from local restaurants, who will compete for your vote to win the “People’s Choice Award.”
For the past seven years, Taste of South Mississippi has raised funds for scholarships at The Salvation Army Kroc Center. Last year’s event raised funds for 40 scholarships at The Salvation Army Kroc Center, which funded 175 members, and more than $9,200 paid for children to attend after-school and camp programs.
The Taste of South Mississippi fundraiser for The Salvation Army Kroc Center will feature local restaurants, including last year’s People’s Choice Award winner Quave Brothers. Tasters will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite restaurant, bid on silent auction items and enjoy music by Saxophonist Jourdan Chaldin and Greater St. John AME Church Men’s Choir. Free childcare will be provided for the first 40 reserved children and Chick-fil-A will be providing the kids a meal. Get your ticket online at KrocMSCoast.org, visit the Kroc Center in Biloxi, or text Kroc Taste20 to 484848.
