Pass the Plates aids homeless shelter

The fifth annual Pass the Plate event was held Saturday night at the Norvell Theater to raise funds for Rowan Helping Ministries.
More than 100 packages and services were donated for people to bid on during the silent auction.
Items up for bid ranged from artwork to weekend spa treatments.
The event was organized by Tracy and Susan Smith. Food Lion was the presenting sponsor. Owen and Bo Norvell donated the use of the newly renovated theater.
Pass the Plate’s goal is to help Rowan Helping Ministries through the next fiscal year. According to Kyna Foster, executive director, it costs $6,300 per day to operate the nonprofit, and at least 45 volunteers each day help to provide services to those in need.
The event raised nearly $100,000 last year. This year’s tally isn’t yet known.
