The Murphy Center Community Dinner is going to be a super casual (shorts, jeans, whatever you consider comfortable) dinner (great Fajitas prepared by our friends at Caring & Sharing), bringing together our community (those with housing and those without) for a night of fellowship. Along the course of the evening, attendees will engage in informal conversation with guests of the Murphy Center, get an update on the progress we have made over the past year, hear some "Housing Success Stories" and learn more about our mission to help support the Ten Year Plan to make homelessness Rare, Short-Lived and Non-Recurring.

The event is being hosted at the beautiful Masonic Temple located at 225 West Oak. Private parking for all guests will be available on the South Side of the building with the entrance to the facility on the North West Corner.

We are also providing a silent auction of Murphy Center guest artwork! Ticket sales for the dinner and sponsorships are the main part of our fundraising (there will be no "ask" at the event)!

Are you an individual, business, or ogranization that would be interested in sponsoring our event? Event sponsorships start at $500. Call Ken at 970-581-4921 or contact Ken@HomelessGear.org and I can tell you more!!
