“Come one, Come All to our Carnival for a Cause!”

We have been awarded a $5000.00 matching grant from Hand in Hand Christian Adoption!! This means that any funds we raise will be matched up to $5000.00!!!!!! Can you believe it?!?! This will be so helpful in completing the costs of adopting Aaron and getting us a great start on the cost of our Haiti adoption.  So to raise funds for the grant we are having a Carnival fundraiser event (this is the last one this year…PROMISE!!!).

More importantly, this evening is to be with all of you.  For a couple of years now you have prayed for us, bought our muffins, volunteered a TON of your time, worked in the pouring rain, helped us to set-up and clean-up, cooked, served, and donated financially.  Aaron’s homecoming is a result of the body of Christ and the community of Sheridan showing their love in word and deed.  So…

You need to meet Aaron!!!!!!

Come meet him and say hello while letting us say thank you for your part in Aaron’s story and praising God for all He has done and is yet to do!!

We have been given incredible items for the Silent Auction and we’ll be putting out some teasers in the coming days leading up to the Carnival so you can be as excited as we are! There are carnival games for kids to play, BBQ dinner, and more that we will announce as we put things in place.  The cost for dinner is by donation and all proceeds from the evening are going toward meeting our matching grant goal of $5000.00.

This is a busy time of year, we tried to get a weekend date at the Fairgrounds but they are booked through November.  Since our matching grant from Hand in Hand Christian Adoption has to be fulfilled by October, we have to have this Carnival and Reception in September.  We understand that weeknights are already full with activities but we would love to see you if you can come for any amount of time that you are able.  Think of it as a Family Date Night and you don’t have to cook dinner!
