Every December, the Young Professionals of the Quincy Area (Y.P.) sponsors a family in the community by raising money to purchase gifts and items they need. This year's Y.P. Good News of Christmas event is on Thursday, December 7, from noon to 1 p.m. at Stoney Creek Inn at 3809 Broadway in Quincy.

The cost of the luncheon is $15, and that includes your meal, a raffle ticket, and a donation. If you can't stay for the program, the lunches will be boxed to go.

The luncheon is a perfect way to get into the holiday spirit and help a family. To make your reservation, call 217-222-7980.
