We will name the Difference Maker of the Year at the banquet on Aug. 18.
The banquet is a free event and open to the public. Tickets are available to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis by calling 573-785-1414 or stopping by the Daily American Republic office downtown. Tickets will be required to attend.
The banquet will also help raise money this year for Haven House, a local shelter for women impacted by domestic violence.
The doors will open at 5:50 p.m., and the event will begin at 6:00 p.m. Dinner will be catered by the United Gospel Rescue Mission in Poplar Bluff, and the band Just Enough will play throughout the evening.
A silent auction, 50/50 table drawing and a $500 gas giveaway raffle will also be held, with proceeds to benefit Haven House. Tickets for the gas raffle can also be purchased at the DAR.
