A local organization that works to help homeless families will hold its annual fundraiser next week.

Hillcrest Transitional Housing’s Field of Dreams Fall Ball features food, entertainment and live and silent auctions.

Melissa Frakes has been the Executive Director with Hillcrest for almost six months. Frakes said the Fall Ball is Hillcrest’s big fundraiser for the year.

“We really rely on the community and their support and the support has been great through the last five years, so we are looking forward to this opportunity to visit and for me it’s going to be my first opportunity to meet some of the supporters,” Frakes said. “So it’s very important to me and for us to be able to express our thanks… to visit and to talk about what Hillcrest has been doing and the successes that we’ve had and the number of families that we’ve had an impact with both physically and spiritually.”

Live and silent auctions will be a part of the Fall Ball. The event also includes guest speakers who are resident graduates.

The Field of Dreams Fall Ball takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, October 19th, at the St. Joseph Civic Arena.
