The praise band Altar'd will perform at 6 p.m., followed by the meal and program.
The event will also include a silent auction.

Mullen became the MSU Bulldogs' 32nd head coach on Dec. 10, 2008.
Prior to coming to MSU, Mullen served as offensive coordinator at the University of Florida and was also alongside Urban Meyer at Utah, where he was quarterback coach of the Utes during their undefeated 2004 season. In just four full regular seasons, Mullen has revitalized and re-energized the Mississippi State fan base. Supporters have turned out in record numbers and capacity crowds to support the Bulldogs under his leadership.
