Dinner and fashion show a success

The Building Bridges to Nairobi fashion show and dinner on February 26th was an uplifting event, as three churches came together to help kids living halfway around the world. Pastor Judith opened with a beautiful invocation that set the tone for the evening. Then the large crowd in attendance sat down to eat a delicious meal together and watch as models showed off the clothing made by hand by the beneficiaries of the Nairobi Street-Children Project. Before and after dinner, patrons explored the tables of items for sale - everything from shirts, dresses, and jewelry to nuts, coffee and tea. The meal was courtesy of Cattie McCarver and her daughter Kathryn Parker and son Donnie Parker, all of Liberty Baptist. The members of the youth group of Holy Family Parish - who were professional in their serving duties and colorful in their modeling - did a great job, under the direction of Michael Schneiders, whom some of you met when he came to speak at FCC several weeks ago. And Helen Mezzera really shepherded the idea from start to finish and acted as coordinator and host. It is amazing what people of great faith can accomplish when they do God’s work together.

Prior to the event, which was held on February 26th in our Fellowship Hall, the efforts of Holy Family had already raised over $9000 to send back to Kenya - in less than a year! This is such a worthy program, and FCC should be proud to have been able to lend its support.

Thanks to all those who helped at (and supported) this ecumenical event. Due to the generosity of all those participating, over $2000 was raised to send directly to the Street Kids of Nairobi project. Maybe we can make this a yearly event of fun and fund!

Dinner and fashion show a success is a fun title to find. It just amused me when I came across it on my search
for Buddhist in these blogs. Amazing what you can find and where you end up.
