Caring for children with health problems is proving to be a local priority once again.
The 48th annual Brotherhood Charity Banquet is scheduled for Saturday at the Knights of Columbus Hall on South Mulberry Street in Elizabethtown. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event is at 7 p.m.
The banquet is presented by the RIASOK Shrine Club and the Knights of Columbus Council No. 1455. The effort typically raises about $21,000 each year for Kosair Charities.
The organization is the largest private donor to Kosair Children’s Hospital and helps families in need through efforts including assisting with medical expenses when insurance runs out and building a playground in Henryville, Ind., after the area suffered tornado damage early last year.
The evening includes an auction, a raffle and door prizes. Children helped by Kosair Charities, or their parents, will speak, event co-chairman Tom Clark Jr. said.
“It just brings light to the good it does,” he said.
Ticket sales are mostly closed, Clark said.
Clark said many people in Hardin County have been helped by Kosair Charities.
The family of one of his two grandchildren who have been treated at Kosair Children’s Hospital benefited from the organization’s help.
“They’re fine now,” he said. “They got great care.”
Those attending the event to help Kosair Charities understand the need, Clark said.
“I think any time you’re taking care of kids or families that it’s very important,” he said.
