Seeds of Hope

March 31, 2023

Each guest will receive one ticket for entry and lunch. We will be serving a variety of soups and bread. Inspired by Stone Soup, we invite you to join us and fill up!

The hour will be filled with stories of hope, laughter and maybe a few tears, as we celebrate triumphs and great work being done in our communities.  This is a fundraiser and there will be an ask at the end of the event.
