Union Mission holds annual Starfish Gala

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Starfish Café held a black tie affair in Downtown Savannah Saturday, as the Union Mission held their 7th annual Starfish Gala.

There was live music and dancing, an auction and all kinds of culinary delights prepared by the recent graduates from the Starfish Café, a part of the Union Mission, the non-profit organization which offers a range of services including hands-on culinary training for local homeless and at-risk individuals.

Frances Carter, President and CEO of Union Mission says "Well, events like the Starfish Gala help us to raise, not only, money for what we do which is helping with the homeless population in our community and provide service for them, it also helps raise awareness in our community, so that others can understand more about homelessness and what we can all do to help."

WTOC's very own meteorologist John Wetherbee was emcee for the gala.
