Models, music and memories will be featured at the sixth annual “To Vicksburg … with Love” fundraiser.

“The theme of this year’s program is ‘Those were The Days’ and will include period clothing and performances,” Frances Koury said.

Koury, a longtime Vicksburg volunteer who has been instrumental in lining up cultural productions in the city for several years, said “celebrity guests” also will be attending, and Johnny Crocker is scheduled to perform.

The annual event, which is scheduled for noon Tuesday, is a joint effort between the Southern Cultural Heritage Center and the Pi Alpha Kappa sorority, and proceeds will be divided between the two groups, said Annette Kirklin, executive director of the SCHC.

The goal of the PAK sorority, which was formed in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1948, said Koury, is to promote personal growth and self-improvement by bringing cultural and educational programs to members.

Roast beef and the fixings will be served by Palmertree’s Catering, Kirkland said. Luncheon tickets are $12.

Space is limited and reservations are required.
