Enjoy southern komfort brass band and second line for good cause

You can enjoy the sounds of the Southern Komfort Brass Band and New Orleans style second line all for a good cause Thursday night in Fondren.

Operation Shoestring is hosting the annual "Shoestring Summer Fling," at Duling Hall. The non-profit opened in the 1960's and provides quality afterschool and summer programs for hundreds of underprivileged children.

Money raised from the "Shoestring Summer Fling" will go towards activities, like Operation Shoestring's summer camp, which starts up Monday. 

"The more good stuff like these summer camps and other things that people can make possible happen for the kids that we serve, the more of that that happens the more that we all benefit from a better, safer, more educated, inspired community," said Robert Langford, Operation Shoestring's Executive Director. 


"Shoestring Summer Fling," officially begins at 7 P.M., but fun activities get underway at 5 P.M. You can buy tickets for $20 at the door and $15  in advance. Fondren's First Thursday's also kicks off at 5 P.M.

Duling Hall is located at 622 Duling Avenue in Jackson.
