Thank you to everyone who came out to participate in the Angel Tree Benefit on Saturday! As a result of the fundraising that occured at this event, over 100 kids of inmates will be able to receive Christmas presents this year!
On behalf of the kids, we would like to to thank:
+The 50 volunteers who made it possible.
+Each of our many generous donors.
+Benetti’s Coffee Experience, who helped us promote the event, graciously provided their parking lot, contributed the s’mores fixings, and offered proceeds from some great drink specials in honor of the event.
+Jonathon Smith, who coordinated the sound and played with his awesome band, My Science Fiction Twin.
+Brendan Hollis, who came from Springfield to play for us.
+Tom Maloney at Business Product Solutions, (located right next to Benetti’s) who provided for numerous logistical needs.
+Matt Mace at the Raytown Fire Department, who provided a firetruck for the event.
+Mary Bliss, who demonstrated her pottery wheel, and provided proceeds from the raku she sold.
+Andy Houltberg from Prison Fellowship, who helped us communicate the blessing of Angel Tree.
+God, who gave us the opportunity to come together to share a great evening serving some wonderful kids for his glory.
