Harvest for the Hungry

Great Job Mom! I am so proud of you.
Don't they look cute?
Sarah got to push baby Efan around while Jenny and Chris ate.
Tom did such a great job.
Mr. Eli came with his Mommy and Daddy. Could he be any cuter? I love those blue eyes and chubby cheeks.
I think Ethan was the youngest person at the event. He is so cute!
Katie sang and did a great job.
I am so thankful so many of our friends were able to come. Andrea and Baron are so special!
People checking out the items, it got crazy!
The tables all looked so pretty.
There were so many great items! It truly is amazing.

Tonight was the fourth annual Harvest for the Hungry Dinner. What a special event and such an amazing night. Mom has worked so hard for months and it turned out fabulous. There was a sold out crowd and over 280 auctions items. The dinner was catered by the Kopper Kettle and was delicious. Tom was the MC and did a great job, I was so proud. The speaker was Josh Bleil, a local Marine who was injured in the line of duty. He did such a great job and was such a motivational speaker with a wonderful message. It was a touching night. Most importantly so much money was raised for the food pantry and the needy families of Hancock County. The auction itself raised over $19,600. With tickets sales and corporate sponsors the total is currently over $35,000 and they are still waiting on the numbers from donations and Christmas baskets. What a blessing, praise God!!!
