The Organ Fun-Fundraiser generated a lot of fun – and $500 toward the pay down of the loan we took out to purchase the new digital organ. Twenty-eight participants turned out for the card making event on Saturday, January 28th. Four card options were available, along with some greeting and color choices, making it possible for each person to exercise a little creative freedom within the items available.
We raffled off two items – which generated a lot of interest. The card making kit was won by, Patti Ienello, a good friend of Karen DiCanzio. The basket of pre-made cards was won by the Aunt of a friend that Alice Wuschke worked with. Both winners were visitors!
As an approved Thrivent “Action Team” we were given seed money to purchase supplies and snack items – which allowed all the money from participant registrations and the raffle items to be part of the donation to the organ fund.
I wish to thank Karen Geromini, who helped prepare the materials for the event. Sandy Amoling, Marian Trolle and our dear friend Jayne Poshkus each headed up a table, guiding folks in the construction of their cards. Those of you who helped clean up – thank you all as well.
Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, so there will likely be more opportunities to try a hand at stamping! — Alice Wuschke
