Each year, hundreds gather in downtown Hernando to celebrate Palmer Home for Children and our mission to provide hope and healing to children in need. This year, we’re grateful to celebrate our 20th Annual Mudbug Bash presented once again by Sky Lake Construction. This much-anticipated event will feature great food, great music, great fun, and, of course, delicious crawfish—all for a cause close to our hearts: helping children thrive.


For two decades, the Mudbug Bash benefitting Palmer Home has been an emblem of unity, compassion, and generosity – and one of the largest annual nonprofit events in the Magnolia State. The event seeks to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in need by funding Palmer Home for Children’s commitment to providing stable and loving homes.

Through four core service lines supporting children and young adults from birth through age 24, Palmer Home provides unique care for every story. Learn more about each program below:
