Angels for Children enjoy costumes, raise funds for cause

Wednesday, November 1, 2017
Angels for Children of the 39th Judicial Circuit, a support organization to help foster children, held its second annual fundraiser on Saturday to raise resources that can respond immediately to help families caring for children placed in foster care. Ed Knaust volunteered auction services, with the assistance of Kelly Lakin, to auction off a wide range of donated items supporting the program. Belinda Wormington, dressed in black as a “fallen angel,” as opposed to those dressed in white, helped display the items placed for bid. Murray Bishoff/Cassville Democrat

For the second year, the Angels for Children organization has held its fundraiser during the Halloween season, offering adult participants an opportunity to revel in costume apparel as part of the evening of fun. Matt Hess, as the Mad Hatter from “Alice in Wonderland,” and Lisa Wormington as a “good” angel, chatted with another storybook character as part of the festivities Saturday at the Monett City Park Casino.
