Blessing Belleville Banquet
The second annual Blessing Belleville Banquet will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, at 4204’s Banquet Center, 6435 W. Main St., Belleville. Proceeds from this event benefit Beacon Ministries, Caritas Family Solutions and Project Compassion. The banquet features live music from Bailey Guinn, of Belleville, and a silent auction. Tickets are $40 each. Sponsorships are also available.
Ally Dyer, a 16-year-old Belleville East student, organizes and hosts this event because she feels called to serve the community. Last year, the Blessing Belleville Banquet raised almost $7,000 for the same ministries and organizations that will be supported this year. The money was used to buy supplies and host programs to help needy area community members. Information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
