Redeemer and the team going to Uganda this summer hosted a fundraising event this past Friday, May 16 in the Fellowship Hall. With live music, delicious food, and a silent auction, the family-friendly event drew a crowd. Between ticket sales and bids from the silent auction, over $5,800 was raised for the team’s trip to Uganda this July.

Jason Moore (on keyboard) and friends provided some great entertainment with their live music!
Attendees crowded into the hallway to get a peek at the silent auction items, place their bids, and edge out the competition before the auction ended.
Party-goers enjoyed delicious fish tacos with plenty of rice, beans, slaw, and all the fixin’s. Delectable desserts and a smattering of other goodies rounded out the meal, served with Ugandan tea.
In addition to silent auction items, we offered the beaded necklaces from the Banda women. The necklaces also made a colorful display on the centerpieces of some tables. Small Uganda flags and facts about the people supplemented the table decor as well.
