Charity Ball to raise money for homeless center
Center manager, Shirley Van Horn, says they're expecting about 300 guests to attend the "black tie" event.
She says it takes about $150,000 annually to run the center and they expect to collect about half of that at the ball.
The evening begins with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails and is followed by a gourmet dinner, music, and a silent auction.
The House of Mercy is a 25-bed homeless center that provides families with short term emergency shelter and access to housing, job placement and child care resources.
