GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

There were plenty of big smiles and a big check at Monday's Harrison County board of supervisors meeting.

That's where representatives of the recent "Bow Ties and Beignets" fundraiser in Gulfport presented a check for more than $15,000.

Gulfport City Councilman, R. Lee Flowers helped chair the event. The money raised will go toward playground improvements at the Harrison County emergency children's shelter.

A rubber sidewalk will be installed in the area around the playground equipment.
