Paula Deen Pledges $1 for Every Harrah’s Tunica Paula Deen Buffet Sold in June to Tunica Cutoff Relief Fund
The queen of Southern cuisine, Paula Deen, has pledged to donate $1 for every Paula Deen Buffet sold at Harrah’s Tunica in the month of June to the Tunica Cutoff relief fund. Paula Deen’s minimum donation to the Tunica Cutoff relief fund will be $50,000.
Tunica Cutoff is a community of an estimated 370 homes that originated from small fishing villages along Tunica Lake, a Mississippi River oxbow lake. Approximately 700 people were affected when Tunica Cutoff was evacuated due to rising Mississippi River levels. The majority of the homes in Tunica Cutoff are expected to be condemned and uninhabitable upon final inspection.
Saturday, June 11 Paula Deen will be at Harrah’s Tunica for her “Personally Paula” stage show where she and various members of her family tell personal anecdotes and interact with the audience. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000, online at ticketmaster.com, at casino gift shops, or the casino box office. The casino box office is open on performance days only. Guests must be 21 years or older.
