Memorial Fundraiser for Det. Eric Smith

Purchase a food plate, and proceeds go to the family of the late JPD officer. Grady Champion and other blues artists perform.

Rooster's Restaurant will hold a benefit for the family of late Jackson Police Detective Eric Smith this weekend. The event will be held this Sunday, April 21, from 11am – 5pm. Restaurateur Nathan Glenn says plates of food will be sold for $10 each with options like pulled pork, red beans and rice and chicken tenders. The goal of the fundraiser is to sell 1,000 plates at $10 each in order to raise $10,000. World-renowned blues musician Grady Champion will bring his band to Fondren for the event. State Street will be blocked from Fondren Place to Mitchell to host what has turned into a festival of sorts. Kathy Glenn will serve as the contact point for volunteers and donations. Call her at 601.966.4991 or email to offer food, labor, time or money. For more information, visit Rooster's on Facebook.
