The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi (The Partnership) will host its second annual “Get Your Kicks On Sports Ball, a tennis shoe kind of event” April 17. The event will be held at The South Warehouse from 7 to 10 p.m. Guests are asked to get their kicks (tennis shoes) on, wear their black ties, cocktail dresses and formal wear while dancing and enjoying interactive sports-themed games. “The funds raised will be used to purchase sports equipment such as kick balls, jump ropes and basketballs to give to elementary school children across the state through our Just Have a Ball program,” Sandra Shelson, executive director of The Partnership said. Tailgating for the “Get Your Kicks On Sports Ball” will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature healthy tailgate options for guests. Silent auction packages include signed prints from the sports and entertainment world. Planning the event are (from left) Frederick Wiley, Ashley Smith, Langston Moore, Melissa Boguslawski, Rhonda Lampkin, Sandra Shelson and Rochelle Culp.
