Tickets are on sale for the 15th Annual Congressional Prayer Breakfast at the Gateway Center in Collinsville. It will be held on Monday, April 29 at 7:15am. It is co-hosted by Congressmen John Shimkus, Rodney Davis and Bill Enyart, but organizers say this is an apolitical event.
Gary Tedrick, Chairman of the Breakfast, says if you are a Cardinal fan, you will recognize this year's keynote speaker.
Andy Benes (pictured) was a 1988 Collegiate Pitcher of the year, United States Olympic Gold Medal Winner in the games held in South Korea.
