Here’s a wonderful story of creative fundraising that comes from the community of Jewell, IA.
Members of Bethesda Lutheran Church in Jewell, IA hosted a Flavorful Fall Fair on November 6 for the community of Jewell. All proceeds from the evening benefited the ELCA Malaria Campaign, through the efforts of the Northeastern Iowa Synod.
During the evening, baked and craft items donated by congregation members were sold.
A coloring contest was held for all. Winners of the coloring contest were determined by the amount of money (votes) given and prizes were awarded in each of 6 age groups.
Beautiful tables were set and hosted by members of the congregation with approximately 110 in attendance. In total, $2,562.71 was raised. This money will be matched by church funds for a total contribution of $5,125.42.
Thank you, Bethesda Lutheran Church in Jewell, IA and the Northeastern Iowa Synod!
