ILLINOIS BIBLE INSTITUTE Contemporary Christian WCIC/PEORIA, IL recently helped to host the 5TH ANNUAL DAVID VAUGHN INVESTMENTS "HIKE FOR HUNGER" on SATURDAY, AUGUST 20th. The event is a benefit for the SOUTH SIDE MISSION in PEORIA.
Hundreds of people came to hike the FOREST PARK NATURE CENTER trails and enjoy inflatables, prizes and a silent auction. The event raised a record breaking $50,000 that will help feed, clothe and shelter the needy in the PEORIA area. This area includes the 61605 zip code, one of the 100 poorest zip codes in the U.S. according to U.S. CENSUS BUREAU statistics.
In the evening WCIC welcomed CHRIS AUGUST and BEBO NORMAN for a free outdoor concert in PEORIA HEIGHTS. The event was presented by PEORIA HEIGHTS CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH with an estimated 1,200 people in attendance.
