Maltshop Fundraiser, 2012
On October 6, 2012, a vehicle crashed through the front of the Malt Shop, a local restaurant that serves up burgers and shakes and is a Natchez institution.
Unsure about the time it would take to rebuild, being able to keep workers on staff while the business was closed and potentially having to be closed for the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race, the short term future of the Malt Shop was unsure. The Krewe of Fat Mama’s held a fundraiser at Fat Mama’s Tamales, that asked local residents to dress up in their best Halloween costume’s, come down to Fat Mama’s for an all Halloween themed party that served as a fundraiser for the Malt Shop. The crowd turned out in great numbers and helped raise funds to re-build and sustain the Malt Shop business!
