The 10th annual “We Help, We Heal, We Hope” event will be held on Saturday at Walhill Farms in Batesville. The event is sold out, but community members will have an opportunity to support the nonprofit organization through an online auction featuring 62 items.

“We are so inspired by the willingness of the guests, and the communities in general who support our work. Safe Passage leaders and the board are grateful to our wonderful sponsors, a record number this year. Not one business turned us down for an auction item; we have over 100 auction donors. Our table hosts help fill the venue, and the 39 table decorators make the event barn a visual delight,” said Mary Mattingly, Community Outreach Director.
