Along with the usual hushpuppies, fries and slaw, Catfish and Khakis comes with a side of entertainment this year.

The annual Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Mississippi fundraiser is set for 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the corner of Fillmore and Cruise Streets. Joining the event for the first time will be the band Trilogy.

“It's one of our biggest and most important fundraisers of the year,” said Cory Holmes, the club’s financial officer. “All proceeds will benefit the Corinth club only.”

It helps the club continue its after-school and summer program for children in Alcorn County. In operation for more than 50 years, the local club has an average daily attendance of 80 to 100 children during school and 120 to 150 children during the summer.

Now in its 12th year, the lunch offers a choice of catfish or chicken with the usual trimmings, along with a beverage and cookie. The cost is $10.

Eat at the site under the white tent, pick up a plate to go or request delivery for orders of 10 or more plates.

With members from Corinth and Ripley, Trilogy is a three-piece classic rock/blues/country band playing music from the ‘70s to today. They were one of the winners in the Mississippi Music Foundation’s 2017 music awards earlier this year for “best Mississippi rock.”

To reserve tickets or place an order for the luncheon, call 286-6662.
