On April 23rd, the Buffalo branch for organized their most successful fundraiser to date! They raised over $9,000 to help pay for camp scholarships, support their outreach in Black Rock and support the branch's Action division. Over 200 people attended the four-hour event, which featured auctions and raffles. "I always enjoy this event because it's an enterprise of the whole branch," says Dave Grzybowski, who has run the branch's fundraising efforts for the last nine years. "Everyone jumps in to help, either setting up, manning the booths and food tables, or taking down."
Charlie Fraga (Vancouver-Portland) will be the next overall coordinator of the People of Praise. He was elected by the community’s board of governors during an assembly that took place September 9-10.
