The Blue Tie Affair, a formal event, will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 28 at the Tupelo Cotton Mill. Tickets are $75 each and include two drink tickets. The event features live music by the Jam Band, a silent auction and heavy hors d'oeuvres. For more information or to buy tickets, visit and click on “Signature Events,” or call (662) 377-5792.

The Run for Your Buns 5K will be held at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, April 4, at Fairpark in downtown Tupelo. A new option this year is the “Spirit Runner” registration, which is for those who want to participate and get a T-shirt, but cannot attend the Race. Visit for more information or to register.

The NMMC Cancer Care Fund is administered through the Health Care Foundation of North Mississippi. In 2019, the fund provided approximately $320,000 to more than 400 qualifying cancer patients. These funds help patients get much-needed pain and anti-nausea medications, nutritional supplements, transportation to treatment and other supplies as needed.
