The biggest news, of course, is our new fundraiser — SummerFeast. On Friday, July 11, we’re having a dinner and silent auction to raise money for JAK’s Place.The event will be held at Hope United Church of Christ, 141 South 12th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. We’ll be serving ham or chicken with side dishes and dessert. Tickets are $8 each or $10 at the door. Dinner will be served from 5pm to 7pm.
Silent aucion items are being gathered from all over Door County. All sorts of merchandise, handicrafts, and services will be available to bid on — everything from gourmet coffee to computer tune-ups!
Most of you may not be aware of how much it costs to keep a drop-in resource center like JAK’s open and running. It’s not just heat and lights; we are still making payments on a mortgage with the end far out of sight, paying staff members, and facing the ever multiplying expenses of building maintenance. We’re not complaining, but we need all the help we can get in order to help others.
So, spread the word!
