CALVARY WOMEN’S 2017 ADVENT BRUNCH WAS A SUCCESS!

December 1, 2017 saw a capacity crowd of 200 Calvary Women members, friends and guests at the annual Advent Brunch. The event started with entertainment from the Alexienne Singers followed by a delicious brunch of egg bakes, fruit, muffins and breads. Marilee Bergerson, our key note speaker, shared with us The Real Meaning of Advent.

The annual Advent Brunch is a major fund raiser for the Women of Calvary — this year we donated our funds to Life Right Outreach. The crowd was touched by the story of recovery from Julie, to the point of a standing ovation — imagine that from Lutherans! Thanks to the generosity of the attendees we were able to give $1,400 to Life Right Outreach for their ministry.

The attendees helped decorate a Christmas tree with mittens, hats and gloves, which was given to United Way for distribution. You can see by the picture it was decorated to overflowing.
