It was a night of good company, delicious food and extraordinary generosity at Grace’s 2014 Elegant Italian Dinner. The February 1 event was hosted by our high school youth group and raised more than $5,000 for our youth mission trip.

The evening included a social hour, silent auction, raffles, and a lasagna dinner served by our youth.

A special thanks goes to organizers Kathy Davis and Tracy Hart for making this such a wonderful evening. Thanks also to Paula Russell and Brenda Malottke for organizing the silent auction; Kristi Peck for handling ticket sales; Sue Nixon, Sabine McDowell, Jim Davis and Warren Davis for their help in the kitchen; Tom and Jane Petrie for overseeing our waiters; Peggy and Dennis Capriglione and Eric Woodruff for serving at social hour; and all who helped with set-up and clean-up.

But the biggest thanks goes to everyone who bought tickets and attended the dinner. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and show of support for our missioners.

This year’s youth missioners will head to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, June 1-7 to work with Habitat for Humanity.
