Thursday night is a big night at the Alerus Center -- the Mission of Hope Banquet & Silent Auction.
Mission of Hope is an annual benefit for Northlands Rescue Mission. Organizers say they're trying to raise 700,000 dollars this fall during its fundraising campaign. More than 800 people are expected to attend. Money raised go toward food, clothing and shelter for the Mission's clients. This year, attendees can enjoy a meal and message from musician and motivational speaker Grant Norsworthy.
"It's a good way for people to realize that there's a community that cares. A lot of our clients will actually come to the event so we'll have about 20 of them, and for them to see hundreds of people that are there to support them has a really big impact on their lives," said David Sena.
The dinner begins at 7pm.
