JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Phoenix Club of Jackson gave back to the community today.

At the 6th Annual Seersucker & Sombreros event, the organization celebrated the Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo and donated $35,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Central Mississippi.

"When the Phoenix Club was founded that was the core mission, to donate every dollar that we made to the Boys and Girls Club of Central Mississippi, because the Boys and Girls Club does so much for our state. You can't even count the ways, from dropout rates to teen pregnancy rates. They really make an impact in our community," said Phoenix Club of Jackson President, Russell Turley.

The Phoenix Club has donated more than $155, 000 to Boys & Girls clubs.

The club says it's important to help tomorrow's leaders.
