Spotlight Jackson, The Social Calendar, has been established to provide Metro Jacksonians with detailed information on upcoming cultural and non-profit events. While Spotlight Jackson will support the many metro area organizations in spreading their messages, it will also enable central Mississippians to identify causes they would like to support and events they would like to attend.
Having worked as a staffer and volunteer with several non-profit organizations, I have long felt the need for a central calendar to assist in event planning. My friend and partner, Jackie Petrus, and I have often discussed the challenges of keeping a mailing list up to date. Along with our graphic design partner, Missy Donaldson, we feel we have come up with an interactive online vehicle that will match events and prospective attendees -- Spotlight Jackson!
We are very excited about this opportunity to help spread the word about all the wonderful cultural and fundraising events taking place in Metro Jackson!
