Chefs from popular restaurants around the region are coming to McComb to strut their stuff to benefit a great cause on Thursday night, when Shuffle to the Chefs returns.
The annual benefit event for St. Andrew’s Mission will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Mill event space in McComb and will feature food from 21 professional and amateur chefs.
Tickets to the event are $100 and available at PJ’s Coffee of McComb, Selman’s Jewelers-Gemologist, and St. Andrew’s Mission.
Organizer Betsy Murrell said the gathering provides opportunity for people throughout the community to try food from local restaurants while supporting St. Andrew’s.
