Help homeless connect

An evening of music, food and fellowship is scheduled for Wednesday at the Depot in Duluth as a fundraiser for Project Homeless Connect.

The “Expressions of Home” fundraiser will start at 5 p.m. and is presented by Heading Home St. Louis County in association with the College of St. Scholastica and the University of Minnesota Duluth Office of Civic Engagement.

The evening’s festivities include a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres and cash bar with music by Jason Hale from 5 to 7 p.m. Concerts will follow with Diet Folk playing at 8 p.m. and The Crunchy Bunch at 10 p.m.

Admission to the event is $5 for students and $10 for others. Anyone bringing a nonperishable food donation for the CHUM food shelf will receive a $1 discount on admission.

Proceeds go to fund Project Homeless Connect, an annual event held in October that connects homeless individuals and families with resources to improve their housing situations, health and well-being, as well as provide a warm meal to those in need. Call (218) 726-7758.
