"Because no one is worth giving up on," a fundraising event will take place Wednesday, May 18, at the Brazil Walnut Theater in support of a two worthy causes.

Organizers confirmed 100-percent of the donations collected during the Keeping Hope Alive would be split between House Of Hope, and to help pay medical expenses incurred by recent burn victim 7-year-old Carmen Schleppy's family.

Entertainment includes live praise and worship music performance by Breaking Silence, drama performances by Eternal Cry and Salvage Yard Youth Group, stand-up comedy by "Uncle Les" Rivera, musical performances by Caleb Sutherland, Destinee Rivera, Delaney Coffin and special moments with the children in the audience.

Surprise gift giveaways will also be available during the evening.

Although a suggested $3 donation will be accepted at the door, which will be open 6:30-9 p.m., organizers said no one would be turned away for the community event.
