The 10th Anniversary of the Idaho Mennonite World Relief Festival was an amazing event. Many thanks to the volunteers who devoted numerous hours preparing for the Festival. The set up on Friday progressed with record speed. The Friday evening Festival dinner was yummy and diners enjoyed light piano and vocal dinner music provided by Isabelle Bowman. Nate Yoder, the Executive Director of West Coast MCC office brought us a message highlighting the work of MCC both on the West Coast and also programs and assistance MCC is providing in other countries across the globe.
Most importantly, we want to thank all of you who attended our Festival on Saturday and the support that you gave to us by bidding on our auction items, making donations and purchasing items in our booths and stores.
Because of all of your support, the Idaho Mennonite World Relief Festival was able to send $60,000 to Mennonite Central Committee!
That includes $1,560.32 for My Coins Count offerings, and $5,675.00 for the Special Project of MCC that took place during the live auction. Three of our quilts sold at record prices for us this year. King Diamond, an all white and dark cream quilt brought $4,000; King Quilt Autumn Splendor brought $3,800; and Queen Quilt Churn Dash Charm sold for $2,100. We also had four quilts that sold for between $1,500 and $1,800. The Silent Auction income was $2,158. Country Store, Gently Used, School Kits, Food Booths, and Children’s Auction along with all of the other live auction items made this our best sale ever. What a great 10th Anniversary Celebration!!
