Words seem inadequate to describe the wonderful outpouring of support that was evident as people gathered for the “Jadin Kora Benefit Fundraiser.” There was an abundance of good food! There was an outpouring of good will.
People came to enjoy the fun and festivities. The pie toss was a special “treat” for some.
Titus Duli and family came to enjoy the festivities, too. Titus expressed his deepest thanks for all the support shown for his family.
We exceeded our goal of raising $2000 for Jadin’s medical needs. Thanks be to God!
Jadin was born with damage done to his left shoulder. He is an active one and half year old. He needs a very special type of surgery that is not available in Nebraska. He and his parents need to go to Mayo Clinic for this procedure.
Grace Lutheran members and friends are planning a special fundraiser for Saturday, September 6. All interested persons are invited to dinner between 5-7 pm. Free will donations will be combined with proceeds from a silent auction and matched by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
There will be games for children and rumor has it that several leaders will sit for a whipped cream toss.
Come out and join the fun while we raise needed funds for Jadin and his family.
Take a look at the latest news. Lots of activities to participate in.
