Mar/Apr 2018 • 27 Shannon Kaiser, one of the event's co- chairs, received the Service to Mankind Award. Salvation Army of Southern Indiana GALA RAISES SPIRITS, FUNDS Rousing live auction bidding, an array of silent auction items, a buffet dinner, special awards, and vibrant spirit of support filled IU Southeast's Hoosier Room recently when the community gathered for the Salva- tion Army of Southern Indiana's seventh annual Bed and Bread Gala recently. WDRB's Keith Kaiser served as emcee for the evening that raised not only thousands for the Salvation Army's critical services but also enough in spontaneous bidding to provide at least one new van for the non-profit that reaches individuals and families in Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, ScoĴ, and Washington counties. For long-standing service and heart for the community, volunteer Shannon Kaiser received the Service to Mankind Award, and Northside Christian Church earned the Lifetime Achievement Award. The Salvation Army's mission is "motivated by the love of God to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination." Its central office is at 2300 Green Valley Road in New Albany. For information, call 812-944-1018.
