On May 3, The Rotary Club of Hattiesburg will host "A Night in Italy," an annual fundraiser benefiting The Children's Center for Communication and Development at The University of Southern Mississippi.

"It's our 12th year to collaborate with Rotary for this event, and we couldn't be more thankful for their commitment to supporting our work in South Mississippi," said Sarah Case-Price, director of the Center. "Our families, staff and advisory board members enjoy working so closely with Rotary to make sure this event is a highlight each year."

Tickets can be purchased through The Children's Center, the Rotary Club of Hattiesburg or at the door.

As a United Way agency, The Children's Center opened its doors in 1974. Since that time, the Center has provided direct comprehensive early intervention services to infants, toddlers and preschoolers with complex communication and development disabilities.
