2023 Fern House Brunch
May 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Twenty twenty-two marks the final year of the “Foundations for the Future” Campaign, our five-year effort to raise $2,250,000 for construction of a new health-conscious cooking and dining facility shown below.
Drafted by the Mets in 1982 and making his MLB debut in 1986 for the World Series winning New York Mets, Barry would spend several years playing 50+ games per year backing up Hall of Fame legend Gary Carter.
After 10 years in MLB, Barry left the field of play and created a new goal of bringing professional baseball back to his hometown of Biloxi, MS. After years of work and effort, the Biloxi Shucker’s played their first home game on June 6, 2015. Barry continues his relationship with the team to this day acting as Team Ambassador.
Barry will share some stories from the ballpark in addition to his story of facing his demons in 2012. We promise you do not want to miss this! Tickets are limited to just 70 seats so don’t hesitate, this event will sell out!
