Our first Annual
Bowls of Blessing Banquet
What an incredible evening! Our First Annual Bowls of Blessing Banquet was held on Thursday March 10th to raise funds and awareness of all the work we do in Van Buren County. Members of the public, and local groups had spent months handpainting bowls to sell. We served soup in them, provided by local restaurants, which were then taken home as a reminder of the blessing the particpants had bestowed on our community!
Many thanks to La Cantina and The Garden Griddle in Paw Paw, The Phoenix Street Cafe in South Haven, Senior Services of Van Buren County and Panera Bread on Westnedge for supplying the DELICIOUS soup. We are grateful too, to our gust speakers, Jason Bull, Vera Tanier- Sebree and Annie Brown.
We raised a wonderful $11,518 thanks to the generosity of all who attended. Thank you so much! We truly appreciate everyone who supported us!
