On today's edition of "Operation: Giving Back," we'll look at Place of Hope Ministries. They're hosting "Hope for the Holidays," a silent auction and banquet tomorrow beginning at 4:00 p.m. at the Calvary Community Church on Roosevelt Road. The program will feature the music of the Place of Hope Choir.

You can help our area's homeless by attending this event. All proceeds will benefit Place of Hope outreach programs. Admission is free but tickets are required in advance. Call 203-7881 or e-mail hope@placeofhopeministries.org. You can also find tickets at local churches, Christian Corner Book & Gift, and Archangel Books & Gifts.
