Please Support “Christmas in July” Fundraiser – Mississippi’s Best Community Newspaper



EWondering how Natchez gets her shine during the holiday season?

All the glitz, glamor and festivities you enjoy each year are made possible by YOU!

Without the support of the community, our small group of male and female volunteers wouldn’t be able to dazzle you with a city draped in lights and garlands, and family events that last all season.

The Christmas committee in Natchez would like to invite you to help dress Natchez for the holidays by attending the annual Christmas fundraiser in July.

Let’s get into the Christmas spirit early with a bit of a “mid-year vacation”.

Buy your tickets now for an evening of cocktails, appetizers and silent auction by the pool at the Pub on Thursday, July 22.

Vacation planning comes early for this committee. We come together throughout the year to make sure your holiday season is festive and beautiful for your whole family.

From the garland that drapes the streets of downtown, to the icicle-dripping memorial park and renovating old IP decorations, just know that the Christmas committee in Natchez has coordinated and planned every detail.

Let’s not forget the magnificent 34 foot tree that is delicately placed in the center of Main Street each year and takes center stage at our annual tree lighting event.

This event, which takes place every year after Thanksgiving, is the official kickoff to the holiday season and brings together hundreds of people in downtown Natchez to participate in this fun, family atmosphere.

Kids can enjoy the North Pole play area and get a glimpse of Santa and Mrs. Claus right before lighting the tree.

Don’t worry if he misses you there, as he visits Natchez again in our annual Christmas Parade.

Every year we add a little something new to our range of exhibitions and events.

In recent years we’ve added Caroling in the Park, and last year we’ve added a new Kwanzaa display on the bluff overlooking the river.

This year we would like to show off our tree by donning new ornaments and hopefully add new wreaths to line the streets of our downtown area.

Without your support, these additions would not be possible, and we thank you for your continued support each year.

COVID may have restricted our events last year, but that hasn’t taken our minds off.

Buy now your ticket for Christmas in July on noë or buy them at the door.

Tickets cost $ 50 / person or $ 90 / couple. Your ticket includes a glass of house wine or a champagne cocktail and appetizers, and you can participate in the silent auction on the back patio.

The fundraiser will take place at the Pub du Château on Thursday July 22 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm All proceeds will go towards beautifying our city during the holiday season.

Can’t attend? It’s OK! You can donate directly on the site. We are a 501c3 through the Natchez-Adams County Community Alliance (a Mississippi nonprofit).

Thanks again, Natchez, for your continued support. See you at the Pub!

Jaki M. Robinson is a member of the Christmas in Natchez committee and is vice president and senior CRM at Home Bank.
