Funding will support food, hospitality & social care programs
Heart, Love & Soul will hold its 17th annual recognition dinner at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 23 at Niagara University, with a plated dinner and live auction. The event is a celebration of the achievements of HLS, a hunger relief and social services nonprofit in Niagara Falls, as well as recognizing the organizations and people that have been instrumental in its success.
Executive Director of Heart, Love & Soul Mark Baetzhold said, “The annual recognition dinner is a wonderful opportunity that brings people together to highlight the important work we do in Niagara Falls. Heart, Love & Soul’s mission of feeding those in need – body, mind and soul, is only possible because of the generous and faithful hearts of the volunteers and partners who are so committed to our mission. On this special occasion, we celebrate our awardees – Myra Supon, Karen Welch and Lawrence Cook – and give thanks for all those who pour their hearts and souls into serving the community.”
This year’s dinner boasts a live auction, fund-a-need (paddle up auction), and door prizes. WIVB Channel 4 is the official television sponsor of the 17th annual recognition dinner.
