The Graves brothers hosted a pizza party Friday at Degage, and invited the area's homeless community to attend. The 30 pizzas were donated by a local restaurant, so the money the brothers raised with help fund the ministry's community outreach programs. 

About 100 people attended the pizza party, according to Degage.
