Through the wardrobe


Please join the Junior Auxiliary of Rankin County for a magical evening of fun and philanthropy at our 33rd Annual Children’s Benefit Gala on March 2, 2019 at The Westin in downtown Jackson. 

We are very excited to announce that our 2019 Children’s Benefit Gala Guest of Honor is Ms. Maggie Wade, of WLBT News. The Junior Auxiliary of Rankin County is proud to recognize her for her years of outstanding commitment and support of children and families in Mississippi. Ms. Wade is well known for her news segment Wednesday’s Child, which featured foster children in the state in need of permanent homes. More than 7,000 Mississippi children were adopted because of this segment.

“A Night In Narnia” guests will enjoy raffles, silent and live auctions, an exciting jewelry pull by Children’s Benefit Gala Dreams Sponsor, Kendra Scott, caricature artist Ricky Nobile, delicious food, cash bar, and many more delights. Guests will dance the night away with amazing live music by Style Entertainment!   

 All proceeds from our 2019 Children’s Benefit Gala “A Night in Narnia” will be used to fund our 15 service projects benefiting children in Rankin County. 

Tickets to the 2019 Children’s Benefit Gala are $60 per person and will be available for purchase online on November 1, 2018.   Ticket purchase will require guests to create an account which will automatically register them to bid in our silent and live auctions. Tickets to this event are limited.
