(Greenville, SC)—The Salvation Army of Greenville will host Light the Path, an annual fundraiser and banquet, on October 1, 2019, at 6 p.m. at Taylors First Baptist Church. Funds raised by Light the Path will support the more than 15 programs and services The Salvation Army provides across Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties.

Every year, The Salvation Army serves the community through their men’s and women’s shelters, the Kroc Center, the Boys & Girls Club, the men’s rehabilitation program, Family Stores and more. Light the Path will serve as a fundraising banquet for these services and programs, which help over 31,000 individuals in the Upstate annually. Light the Path will also serve as celebration of The Salvation Army’s volunteers and partners, who have helped serve the community through time and treasure.

The program will feature Beth Clements, First Lady of Clemson University, as the keynote speaker and WYFF 4’s Dale Gilbert as emcee. Dinner will be catered by the Kroc Center’s events department, and several videos highlighting The Salvation Army’s local impact will be shown. Light the Path will also feature a silent auction, including items such as a guitar signed by Kenny Chesney and a set of new Michelin tires.

“The Salvation Army has served Greenville since 1904,”says Major Andy Kelly, Area Commander of The Salvation Army of Greenville, Pickens and Oconee Counties. “And over those 115 years, we’ve continually grown our programs to help the most people in the most need. We hope Light the Path will shed light on our services within the community and show how you can join us in the fight for good.”
