Second Mile Mission Center’s 15th annual fundraising banquet and silent auction will be held Friday, April 12, at Safari Texas Ranch.
The reception and silent auction begin at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. This year’s event is made possible by presenting sponsor Sugar Creek Baptist Church.
“This is Second Mile’s largest fundraising event of the year and will ensure that thousands of families facing poverty or a time of crisis can find support,” said Sarah White, Second Mile’s executive director.
The banquet theme is “Equip,” and will reflect on the resilient and determined individuals served by Second Mile who are taking next steps and pursuing personal and professional goals to support their families.
The annual dinner and silent auction event raise operating funds for Second Mile, with a goal to raise $175,000 this year. Businesses, organizations and individuals throughout Fort Bend County support this event through sponsorships and donations to the silent auction.
