The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Golden Triangle believe it has hit one out of the park with this year's speaker for its Sports Talk Charity Fundraiser.
This year's event will be held on Thursday at the East Mississippi Community College Golden Triangle Campus Lyceum Auditorium and the guest speaker will be Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen.
After getting MSU football coach Dan Mullen to appear at the first event last year, Nadia Dale was excited to follow that up with Cohen.
"Anytime we can bring a proven winner to come in and speak, it's a great thing," Dale said. "After their trip to the College World Series, we're excited to have him so we can hear a little bit about that journey. Hopefully that will inspire some of our members and parents and sponsors that will be there."
The doors open for a silent auction at 6:30 p.m., then the dinner begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets are on sale for $100 and are available by contacting Dale at 662-418-7285.
"Ticket sales have been going good, but we have a few more if people are interested, but we're expecting a great turnout," Dale said. "Sponsorships have come in quite nicely so we anticipate meeting our fundraising goal again this year from the proceeds from the event so we are really excited about the momentum we've gained."
