Emergency Cash Bash Fundraiser

Emergency Cash Bash Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
 The only shelter for single homeless women in southwest Alabama is in danger of closing.  McKemie Place is asking for your help.  An emergency cash bash fundraiser is being held for the Mobile shelter this Saturday night from 5 to 8 at The Grounds.  There will be a $5,000 draw down with dinner and live music
  
The facility desperately needs money to house women from Mobile, Baldwin, and Washington counties who would otherwise be on the street.
  Wednesday night, around 50 women are staying in the shelter. "It's an emergency fundraiser because as I've said, this is a time of the year that our funds are low.  We're in a cycle where our grants are not coming in at this time, and every time we've gotten into the position and we've let the community know, they have come through for us and we would never want to be in a position where we would have to close McKemie Place said, Vicki Bowers, McKemie Place Director.
