Listen: Advisory Board Member Mark Roome says some tickets are still available for the October 29 luncheon.
Roseville Salvation Army will “Ring In Hope” with its Annual Luncheon and Red Kettle Kickoff. All money raised will stay in the local community to fund social service programs and emergency disaster services efforts.
What: The Roseville Salvation Army will kick off its busy holiday season with a silent auction and luncheon Tuesday. The event will feature special guests and amazing items up for auction. Last year, the annual luncheon raised just over $57,000 for Salvation Army programs. This year, they’re hoping to top that with a goal of $65,000. More than 200 people are expected to attend. Those still looking for tickets can find them here http://rosevilleluncheon.org.
Why: All money raised from the kettle kickoff luncheon will stay in the Placer County community. It will not only help provide a merry Christmas to those in need, but fund programs that transform lives all year long. The Roseville Salvation Army provides food to the hungry, rental and utility assistance to struggling families, drug and alcohol counseling, career and finance coaching, visits to the elderly, youth programs and camp, and emergency disaster services.
Who: The event is hosted by the Roseville Salvation Army Advisory Board. Special guest speaker will be Dr. John Jackson, President of William Jessup University. Paul Robbins, Lead Faculty for the Digital Communication and Design degree program at William Jessup University and co-host for “92.5 The Breeze” KBEB, will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the event.
Advisory Board Member Mark Roome will also share his story. Roome’s family has a strong tradition of volunteering with The Salvation Army. He will talk about why year after year, his family including his children and even grandchildren help with red kettles, toy distribution and food baskets.
