The Butte Rescue Mission's annual fundraiser banquet has been set for Wednesday, October 11 at the Maroon Activities Center and quite the evening is planned for guests and prospective donors.  "Peace" in the Puzzle is this year's theme with proceedings getting underway at 5:30pm.  Britney Higgs, founder of the HER Campaign will be the featured speaker.

Again this year, Pintler View Catering will be taking care of dinner, and they will be rolling out quite the spread.  The entrees will be Chicken Rockefeller with artichokes and bacon or Oven-Braised Beef Palmero with slow-roasted butternut squash and roasted rosemary potatoes on the side.  Dinner will be served with a classic Caesar Salad and dinner rolls.  Fall and pumpkin-inspired treats will be served for dessert along with iced-tea, lemonade, coffee and hot tea.  A silent auction is planned as well as an evening of "inspiration, camaraderie and a shared commitment to making a difference."

Individual tickets are $35 and available here and many additional sponsorships are available for those wishing to make a difference.  Sponsorship opportunities start at $500 which will include admission for 8.  Tickets may be gifted or donated back to the Rescue Mission to sponsor a guest.  Other 8-ticket sponsorship packages range from the $750 "Cots and Linens" option which will include advertising for your business as well as mattresses, sheets, pillows, blankets, and towels for six individuals to the $5000 "Building Sponsor" option which will cover provide heating, cooling, and maintenance at the shelter for 30 days. Can't make the banquet but still want to be a sponsor?  Look at their "Childrens Snacks" or "Household Supplies" sponsorships or consider making a donation to their silent auction.  Table Sponsorship information and more is available here.
