Garden Trivia Night a Huge Success!
The final numbers for St. Martin’s Trivia Night in support of our garden are finally in and the results are outstanding. Here are the numbers:
- 96 people attended our November 3rd event
- After expenses, we raised $4,719 in just one night!
- Some of this money will be used to increase the size of our garden in 2019
- Members of the Garden committee also decided to share our blessings by donating $800 to the St. Martin’s Social Justice Commission and $800 to the Diocesan Task Force on Hunger
But the numbers don’t really tell the whole story. The real story is in the love and commitment shown by members of this parish in support of this ministry. I could, and perhaps should, begin by thanking all individuals who helped make this event a success. But frankly there isn’t enough room or time to mention everyone because so many of you gave so much of your time, your talent and your treasure. But know this: What we do, we do together, to feed the hungry in the name of Christ.
Our hope and our prayer is that in some small way we can bring comfort where that is none, hope where there is little and peace that only Christ can give. Thank you St. Martin’s. You are a blessing and you are blessed.
