BBQ & Blues Fundraiser

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg residents enjoyed some fun in the sun on Saturday as they took part in the BBQ & Blues fundraiser at the Keg and Barrel.

The event was put on by the Clinical Psychology Graduate Student Organization from the University of Southern Mississippi. The clinical psychology program has an on-campus clinic that provides therapeutic services to USM students, adults, children, and families in the community and surrounding areas.

"I think that a lot of the times we really don't look out for the people that need it the most and we really wanted to make a different with some people that otherwise wouldn't't have this opportunity," said Tiffany Hopkins, President of CPGSO. Guests ate world-championship barbecue from the "porkosaurus" cooking team and enjoyed music from Ralph Nix and the Catfish Gospel.

The proceeds from Saturday's event went towards improving access to mental health in the community.
