This is the 10th anniversary of the fundraiser that traditional accounts for nearly one-third of the non-profits annual budget.  Because of COVID-19 concerns there will be no hotel ballroom party, but Hawaiian shirts and floppy hats are still encouraged for on-line event this year that will include a virtual destination, silent and live auctions and much more. Family Promise is currently still accepting auction items for the event and you can make donation arrangements by calling 406-294-7432.

Family Promise is a fantastic organization in Billings that helps local families get back on their feet in a sustainable manner. Homelessness is a huge problem in Billings. According to a representative of Family Promise, local statistics indicate that the homeless you see out in public represents only 7% of the actual homeless population in Billings. Many are parents that are employed, but due to various circumstances, they simply can't afford a place to live.
