Event of the Week: Mudbugs and Music

Mudbugs & Music is a family-friendly fundraising event complete with live music all day long, indoor silent auction with items from generous vendors from all over the Birmingham area and beyond,  and crawfish & fixin’s cooked on-site.  You’ll have plenty of beer to cool you off, a children’s area with BirminghamMommy and activity stations provided by the McWane Center. Moonwalk, face painting and other activities for the kiddos, and pups are always welcome!

The goal of Mudbugs and Music is to raise awareness for arthritis through the event and help to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis, the nation’s No.1 cause of disability.  There are over 100 types of arthritis and more then 1 MILLION women, men and children that are affected by it in our state – ranking Alabama #2 in the nation in diagnosed cases of arthritis & rheumatic diseases.  Chances are you know someone affected by this disease.

All proceeds raised at Mudbugs & Music go to various arthritis initiatives throughout the state, including the Juvenile Arthritis Initiative – an avenue where funds will go directly toward funding the Alabama pediatric rheumatology program

Tickets are $25/person and includes your entry into the event as well as all the crawfish and fixin’s your can stomach in a six hour period.  To purchase tickets in advance, click here.
