SEBRING — Hope for MLK Boulevard, a free community event, will be held Saturday at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Lemon Avenue in Washington Heights.

The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will feature fun and games and a bounce house for the kids, free hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks, resource agency information and music, prayers for those who have a need and ministry for everyone.

Hope for MLK Boulevard is sponsored by Reaching Out International Inc. and Bread For Life Ministries with Willie and Valerie Olds, Kevin and Patricia Ayala and Tony Diaz among the organizers.

Willie Olds said non-profit groups will be present and the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office is participating with a member of its administration scheduled to be among the speakers.

The road will be blocked off for the event, he said. The fire department will be there.

“There is a lot that will be going on up there and we are just trying to shed a little light in a very dark place,” Olds said.

Ayala noted, “Come! Let’s bring the love of Christ for change, for the community.”

All outreach ministries are welcome to join and help, contact: Ayala at 863-202-5497 or email: reachingoutministries@gmail.com.
