Mayors team up to fight hunger

An annual event devoted to fighting hunger hosted by Jackson County's mayors will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at Jacksonville's Bigham Knoll Event Center.

Mayors United boasts tastings from local restaurants, wine and beer samplings, entertainment, and live and silent auctions. All proceeds will go the ACCESS Food Share Pantry Network.
