This evening is our annual Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction to raise monies to help with our operating expenses. What makes our event different than most is that we bring folks to the monastery -- instead of holding it at a local hotel or country club. And, they are invited, their schedule permiting, to begin the evening in prayer with us at Vespers.
It's an enjoyable evening for all, and includes a delicious served dinner by a local caterer who absolutely loves our kitchen.
The baskets for the silent auction are crafted largely by our volunteers from items donated from various companies, organizations and individuals and have fun themes and great content. We are indeed blessed that so many are generous to us.
Something we started last year and that was a definitely worth repeating was our dessert idea: a sunday bar! Who doesn't like ice cream and an array of toppings to choose from?
