JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Food and fun for all ages, and it’s all for a good cause.

John 3:16 Ministries is hosting one of its biggest fundraising events of the year Friday night, called Winter Blast.

The five-hour event takes nearly three months to plan and a community full of support to pull off.

Director Bryan Tuggle said this year's Winter Blast is particularly special.

"We're expecting around 3,500 people," Tuggle said. "And we've sold 150 tables out here, it's the first year we've been able to sell all of it completely out, so we're excited about that."

Ticket sales, auction items, and concessions all benefit the spiritual boot camp for men struggling with drug or alcohol addiction.
