The Holiday Tasting Luncheon last Friday brought in approximately $4,500 for Helping Hands Ministry.
The Son Building at First Baptist Church was the setting for the annual fundraiser with Barbara Rose serving as chairman.
Twenty churches from throughout the county provided a variety of holiday foods which were placed on tables with seasonal decorations. Tables where guests were seated were also centered with arrangements which were offered for sale.
Funds were also derived from sale of tickets for $10 each, a second time around jewelry sale, and a silent auction. Jewette Battles was coordinator for the jewelry and Mary Davidson, the auction. Mary Al Alford handled arrangements for table decorations.
Businesses giving support were Wal-Mart, Merchants and Farmers Bank, Mississippi Home Care, Sta-Home, Sunflower, Kosciusko Junior Auxiliary and Central Office Supply.”
“I am grateful to the community for its response in supporting Helping Hands, an organization that benefits the less fortunate in the county,” said Barbara Rose, chairman.
