A Bubbly Affair Wine Tasting - Proceeds to Benefit Suds of Love & RCC Nursing Scholarship
I wanted to provide everyone with a final update on our wine tasting event from last month. We had an incredibly successful (and fun) evening, raising right at $3000!!!
We will be funding our annual RCC scholarship, along with a donation to our new benefactor Suds of Love. Suds of Love is providing three washer and dryer sets (and supplies) for the following schools: Piney Grove, Knuckles, Littlefield.
Pretty much every parishioner was involved in some way, shape, or form, in making this event such a success, and I thank you all. Whether it was selling tickets, buying tickets, bringing appetizers/desserts, helping in the kitchen, serving, cleanup - the list goes on and on.
Thanks toDencie and Jef Lambdin, Susan Anderson, Mike and Monica Doares, Donna Gage, Lynn Andersen, Candy Borbet, Susan Williams, Floyd Locklear, Sharon Leary, Gene Wayman, John Hodges, and Greg Malinsky.
As they say “it takes a village” – I’m proud and honored to be a part of this village!
