FIRST FUNDRAISER!

Curtis and I are excited to share that our first fundraiser will be held THIS Saturday, August 11th!

Last week I shared an idea about having a yard and bake sale.  On Wednesday I was contacted by a local business, The Fussy Duck.  They are getting ready to host their annual parking lot sale and they wanted to offer us space to use to help fundraise for Porter.  I was ecstatic!!  The business owner mentioned that last year their biggest complaint was that there wasn't food offered.  BINGO!  We had a plan.  Put our yard sale on hold and hold our bake sale at The Fussy Duck.

My husband is not only gifted at planning and pulling off events that involve food, but absolutely LOVES IT! He is ServSafe Certified and is knowledgeable in what is required with food concessions.  So, within 24 hours, we had a menu planned, equipment reserved, our food permit paid for, banner ordered, and flyer's created.  I put out a request for people to help donate baked goods to sale, and the response was immediate.

We are so very grateful for this opportunity and all of you who are helping to make this happen.  We know that this Saturday is going to be incredible!  If you are close by, we would love to see you!

  1. I can't wait. And last evening I asked a lady from church that owns a bakery if she would be interested in donating anything and she said she would. Yay!
