Homeless Coalition Banquet

Posted: Updated:

Tonight the Minot Area Homeless Coalition is receiving a little help to help others with its 8th-annual banquet and fundraiser.

This evening's event includes a meal, an address from Minot State University President, David Fuller, and a silent auction.

The auction includes signed celebrity memorabilia and items donated from businesses in the community.

Homeless Coalition Executive Director, Mac McLeod says the funds will help make up for this year's budget that has already been spent.

(Mac McLeod, Minot Area Homeless Coalition)"People are wanting and needing help. We want to be there to help them. And the problem is that we have more individuals in need than we have funding. For the first time that I can remember, me being executive director, we had to have a waiting list."

The Minot Area Homeless Coalition also accepts direct donations.
