Jeff Good, owner/operator of Sal & Mookie’s, says, “Sal & Mookie’s is a huge part of the Jackson community. Every year, we throw our annual Children’s Carnival during Fondren’s Zippity Doo Dah Weekend, which also benefits Friends of Children’s Hospital. When Kendall with Inspiration Mississippi came to us with this idea to benefit the hospital during National Ice Cream Month, we knew that this would be another perfect way to show our commitment to this community and our kids. We hope that ‘Ice Cream with Friends’ becomes an annual event in the future.”
As part of the fun, Sal & Mookie’s had a few special guests visit to get their Batson Sundae! A group of athletes representing the Mississippi State University football team, the women’s volleyball team, the men’s basketball team, and others were in town to visit children at Batson Children’s Hospital. While they were there, they played games with the kids, visited many hospital rooms, and signed autographs. After spending a fun afternoon at the hospital, they stopped by Sal & Mookie’s for a Batson Sundae.
A big thank you to the Mississippi State Athletic Department for supporting Ice Cream with Friends and always bringing a smile to the faces of the children at Batson Children’s Hospital!
