Waveland tattoo shop plans CASA fundraiser

Gulf Coast Tattoo Co. in Waveland plans a community give-back day Friday from 11 a.m. to midnight, when 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to CASA of Hancock County.

Special pricing for the one-day event is $20 and owner Scott Wiecek said he expects a crowd at the shop at 315 E. U.S. 90.

This small business is doing its part to help the child-abuse epidemic in South Mississippi, said CASA Executive Director Cynthia Chauvin of the fundraiser. "Helps us get the word out about our need for volunteers while also raising money to help with recruitment and training. What an innovative way to support our mission," she said of the tattoo benefit.
