TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- It was a night of jazz featuring reknowned saxophonist Grady Nichols, whose work can be heard all over the country.
The annual event goes to raise money for the Red Cross which has already helped families in north Mississippi this year.
"Already this year, we have assisted seventeen families in the sixteen counties that we cover that have had house fires," Northeast Mississippi Red Cross Executive Director Patty Tucker said. "The proceeds from this event will help us so that when families have a house fire, we can provide them with that immediate assistance."
Tucker added that more than five hundred guests were expected to be in attendance at Saturday night's event.
