Save the Date for Autumn Odyssey!

Join us on November 10th for an evening of food, entertainment, a live auction and our first "wall of envelopes" at the Friends of the Homeless' Autumn Odyssey at the beautiful Kent State University Performing Arts Center. Our primary fundraiser for the year, Autumn Odyssey benefits the Shelter as well as Pathway to Wellness.

The event begins at 6:00 P.M. with hors d'oevres , followed by a buffet catered by Ross Mountain Barbecue at 7. Master of Ceremonies Greg (Morrison) Ginther, retired from WTUZ, will host the event. Dinner music will feature Will Handrich. A special performance by Paul Antonelli, Jr., current Pathway resident, will also take place.

A Wall of Envelopes will be available all evening to enable guests to assist further with our cause. The LIve Auction will follow dinner with Ryan Wallick of Wallick Auctioneers in charge of that event.

Tickets are $50 and are available on our website at They can also be purchased at McDonald Niklaus Framing & Gifts, 700 Boulevard Street, Dover, phone 330.364.3136
