The Blessing Hosts a Car Show

A big thank you goes out to all who contributed to our most recent event! We hosted a car show, sponsored by Dr. Doug’s House of Hot Rods. Contestants were awarded prizes, and we provided the food and a free concert. We asked for food donations in exchange for a place in the car show, and are thankful to the many volunteers who gave their time and efforts to make the event a success.

We hoped to raise $2000 from the show to purchase a used cooler, which would allow us to keep donated perishables fresh and tasty for our food bank guests. Amazingly, we ended up raising over $2500.

We purchased a new 2-door cooler and had it delivered to the food bank. The very same day, we received a phone call from Cheney Stadium. They had a surplus of perishable food and needed a place to give it away, and we were happy to help them out!

We are ecstatic that God not only provided the funds to purchase a new cooler, but also immediately filled it with food for our guests.

We advertised the show in the neighborhood to invite people to show off their cars:
