On Sept. 6, Zionsville Fellowship Church, 9090 E. Ind. 334, will host its annual “Spreading the Love” fundraising banquet and silent auction to benefit Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) of Boone County.
Love INC is a network of churches, agencies and volunteers that has grown rapidly by addressing the problems caused by rising unemployment and social issues in Boone County and its communities. Today more than 30 churches throughout the county partner with Love INC to reach out and serve those in need.
“(We) operate a clearinghouse of resources,” said Wayne Adams, executive director of Love INC of Boone County, “and (have) a group of trained volunteers largely from area churches ready to assist in many ways.”
Unexpected events like the loss of a job, a serious health diagnosis, a failed relationship or major repair that is unaffordable can wreak havoc on our everyday lives. That’s when Love INC steps in, equipped with hundreds of volunteers who are mobilized to receive requests for assistance and come alongside people during difficult times.
The Sept. 6 event will feature stories from people who have been helped through the program, a short presentation that will explain what that makes Love INC unique, a special recognition of the original board members of Love INC Boone County and much more.
Registration and the silent auction begin at 5:30 p.m., with dinner at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person or tables for eight for $160. To register for the banquet or for information on Love INC, visit loveincbc.org or call 765-482-6152.
