Livermore company Rice Agri-Marketing is set to host fundraisers to help benefit Owensboro-based non-profit organizations Friends of Sinner and Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center (WKRBC). The fundraisers will be held in conjunction with a blood drive.
Food, such as coffee and danish, will be served during the one-day event. Staff and clients of Friends of Sinners will be present in the fundraiser as they will share testimonies of previous drug addictions. The WKRBC bloodmobile will also be present to accept blood donations.
Friends of Sinners development director Jordan Wilson stated, “This fundraiser could benefit two nonprofits greatly. Not only can the community come get some food and donate blood, but this is a great opportunity to learn about Friends of Sinners. We are an effective ministry and Western Kentucky is a better place because of it.”
Wilson also added that Jeff Rice, founder of Rice Agri-Marketing, was the one who approached Friends of Sinners and WKRBC about the event.
Jeff Rice stated, “I know they’ve helped a lot of people find Christ, and in that, it changed their lives. They were able to overcome their addictions and get back with their families, as well as find jobs. I feel like it’s a good cause that changes people’s lives and I think that’s what we all strive to do every day.”
The fundraiser is set to happen on February 26. The event will run from 7:30 to 10:30 AM at Rice Agri-Marketing, 720 U.S. 431 in Livermore. Afterward, the event will move to the Bellevue Baptist Church, at 4950 Kentucky 56 in Owensboro and will run from 12:30 to 4 PM.
