An organization that provides therapy and other services to the area’s needy families is raising money for the cause.
Manatee Hope will host its fifth annual dinner and silent auction Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Elks Lodge in Palmetto.
Guests are asked to dress in their best Mardi Gras attire for the evening, which will feature dancing, dinner, a silent auction and live music by Rusty Trumpet.
The East County-based nonprofit provides mental-health assistance, case management, speech and physical services, counseling, parent-and-child interaction therapy programs and more for uninsured, homeless or low-income families in need.
