Long's United Methodist Church will host a benevolence fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at the Maggie Valley Town Pavilion located at 3987 Soco Road, Maggie Valley.

Inspired by a desire to help one of its members pay off cancer-related medical bills, the congregation at Long's UMC is establishing a benevolence fund to be used for the purpose of heldping those in the community with financial burdens. Since the funds will support community members, the community is invited for a day of BBQ, provided by Good to the Bone, music, clogging, a silent auction and more.  All the entertainment, baked goods and silent auction items have been donated by community members.

BBQ dinners will cost $8 for adults and $4 for children 10 and under. Each dinner includes BBQ, baked beans, slaw, roll, drink and dessert; hot dogs are also available.

Call 648-0380 for information.
