The 2017 Backpack Bash, to benefit Blessings in a Backpack, is this Friday at the Keller Convention Center. The Eighties themed fundraiser will feature an all-around-the-world buffet and live music from the Brat Pack. Eighties attire is optional, but there will be costume contest. Proceeds will go to support the organization’s efforts to provide reliable nutrition for low-income students in Effingham County on days school isn’t in session. Nearly 500 area kids benefit from the program.
