HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A monthly, 'Business After Hours' event for the Area Development Partnership was turned into a holiday gathering to help local non-profit organizations Thursday night. The first, 'Evening of Giving' at the Southern Miss Accelerator showcased 13 non-profits who serve the Hattiesburg area.

The event also featured a raffle to raise money for those organizations.

"50 percent of the proceeds were split amongst the 13 charities who participated, while the other 50 percent went to the lucky winner tonight," said Valencia Williamson, Vice Pres. of the Chamber of Commerce Division of the ADP.

The big winner in that raffle was the Children's Center at Southern Miss.
