Hattiesburg organization party with a purpose by donating $2,500 to children’s shelter


During their monthly get together at Keg and Barrel Sunday, the Hattiesburgers in Paradise donated a $2,500 check to the South Mississippi Children’s Shelter...

Although the organization is focused around having a good time and living the Jimmy Buffet lifestyle, they always party with a purpose.

“We chose the South Mississippi Children’s Shelter because these children are ripped from their homes in many cases, sometimes in the middle of the night with nothing but the clothes they’re wearing,” said Hattiesburgers in Paradise Co-President Andy Waites. “Our whole purpose for being here is to show people that you can have a good time, but as long as you have it for a reason then it makes it even better.”

This year alone, the Hattiesburgers in Paradise have raised a total of $9,800 for the South Mississippi Children’s Shelter.
