This year's event, which marks the third year the Den has hosted the fundraiser, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15 at New Site Baptist Church in Monett. The dinner, which will be catered by Prime Cut, will begin at 6 p.m. followed by a concert by Monk. Mocha Jo's will provide delicious desserts.
Monk is a Nashville-based Christian recording artist whose single, "Beautiful Me," is a current top 20 song that is getting lots of air time on Christian radio stations across the country.
Before becoming a solo artist, Monk recorded two top Christian albums, Dancing with the Angels in 2005 and The Twenty-First Time in 2008, as half of the Monk and Neagle duo.
The cost to attend the banquet and concert is $30 per person. All proceeds will benefit the non-profit, Monett-based youth center, which is dedicated to providing a safe, positive and fun place for area youth to hang out and socialize. The Den is located above Mocha Jo's at 404 E. Broadway in Monett.
To purchase a ticket or a table, contact Brian Smith, director of The Den, at 417-635-1108.
