Launching the Mission fundraiser is March 3
You can “be the change” for Mission of Hope House by attending a gala fundraiser March 3 at Crystal Falls in New London.
This is the second year for the New London homeless shelter’s major fundraiser, which will include entertainment, dinner, raffles and an auction.
Individual tickets for Launching the Mission: Be the Change are $35 each, with VIP tables available for groups of 8 at $450 each, which includes two bottles of wine. RSVP by Feb. 16 by calling 920-249-4705.
Individual tickets are available at these New London businesses: Fox Community Credit Union, First State Bank, Wolf River Community Bank and the New London Chamber of Commerce.
The social hour begins at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 6. Crystal Falls Banquet Hall is located at 1520 Handschke Dr., New London (east of Walmart).
Proceeds will be used to help complete final details needed to open the 21-person homeless shelter, which depends entirely on individual and company donations. Two years of effort by volunteers, under the guidance of co-founder and MOHH president Lori Prahl, have raised about $500,000 so far, Prahl said in a December 2017 letter to the public.
The goal is to raise $150,000 a year for three years to ensure the shelter has enough money to provide steady service for the homeless of Waupaca County and surrounding areas.
Mission of Hope House, 520 N. Shawano St., also earns money through The Bridge, a thrift store operating across the street from the shelter.
