Our first big fundraiser!

Our first big fundraiser has now been set up!  Our friends Matthew and Amanda VanderMeer are hosting a Taco Dinner and Silent Auction on Saturday December 8, 2012, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at our church, Grace Fellowship on 8th Street in Demotte.  Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for children.  We are hoping to have gift card giveaways every half hour and already have some items for the silent auction!  I know that it is a busy time of the year with Christmas programs, shopping, etc., going on, but just drop by for a quick meal while you're out and about doing Christmas shopping, on your way to a program, or wherever your headed....it's definitely cheaper than McDonalds and probably healthier! We will also have carryouts available if anyone is interested.

We are so thankful for the help and friendship of the VanderMeers.  They are old pros at fundraising now, after having had to raise funds for their own China adoption for their beautiful son, Chase, who they will be able to get sometime this coming Spring.  We have never done fundraising and, honestly, it is a very uncomfortable place for me to ask anybody for anything, ever!!  However, I know if it were someone else having a fundraiser for their adoption, we would be so excited to be able to help and be supportive!  I guess things are different when the shoe is on the other foot. =)

If you are interested in coming and getting your taco fix, click on the link to the right for The Orphan Mission....you can buy tickets online there.  We look forward to seeing you!!
