From United Way Vicksburg:

On Thursday, September 28, 2023, Dine and Stroll the Old Mississippi River Bridge: Supper on the ‘Sip is returning for the 4th year!

“We are so excited to be able to host one of Vicksburg’s favorite events.” said Alyssa Lick, United Way of West Central Mississippi Director of Marketing and Resource Development. “It’s always fun to hear the office phone ring off the hook, social media posts, and the community getting excited about this event months before the date is even announced.”

Tickets to the event went on sale, September 5, 2023 at midnight and yet again sold out within 36 hours!

United Way of West Central Mississippi has been celebrating 70 years of helping the community! Through the years we have helped countless people in our community through education, health, financial stability, and support services. This support would not be possible without the ones in our community who continue to give, advocate, and volunteer. Each year Vicksburg and surrounding areas get excited about dining and strolling the Old Mississippi River Bridge at Supper on the ‘Sip! However, many do not know that this is our annual campaign fundraiser that will help us continue to help those in our community through our 15 partner agencies. By purchasing a ticket, you’re helping our community unite in purpose, for a purpose!

United Way of West Central Mississippi’s small staff led to much collaboration, with numerous sponsors supporting the event and some 100 volunteers working to recruit restaurants, design and sell merchandise, and orchestrate the intricate logistics and décor of an event of this scale.

“This truly unforgettable night would not be possible without our incredible committee of volunteers,” said Michele Connelly, Executive Director of United Way of West Central Mississippi. “They represent our community as a whole: no matter what we go through, we will come together to support each other and celebrate what makes our community special.”
