I do not have an ounce of artistic talent, so I have to be particularly motivated by the reason for an art fundraiser if I am going to do it. 🙂
Such is the case with the “Charcoal Expressions” fundraiser to support Bethany Harman and her trip to Europe for the Wisconsin Ambassadors of Music. She has been a faithful participant in our church vocal choir and bell choir and has often shared her musical talent for our church. She serves as a member of our church council. She recently was confirmed and has become a full and active member. I look forward to the opportunity to help her in this effort, and encourage you to do so as well.
For our most recent “The Compass Newsletter:
On Tuesday, May 22nd, the Harman’s welcome artist and family friend Robert Gorder of Charcoal Expressions from 6:00 to 8:30pm in the Fellowship Hall at DUMC. This is a fundraising event to help raise money for Bethany’s Wisconsin Ambassadors of Music European band trip.
