Update on the St. Barnabas International Benefit Dinner

International Benefit Dinner


WHAT: A fun evening of delicious international food, Tricky Tray, auction items and fellowship.

WHO: Open to St. Barnabas members, friends, and community.

WHERE: Trinity Episcopal Church, 33 Mercer Street, Princeton

WHEN: Saturday, October 15, 2011 5:30 – 8:00PM

WHY: To raise funds to support our outreach ministries, including HIV/AIDS awareness programs in Africa, and the struggles against homelessness, hunger, domestic violence, racism and addiction.

Last year, the International Benefit Dinner was a huge success – beyond what we imagined. Now, the excitement is starting to build as we have received the first ads for our 2011 International Benefit Dinner! This year the Ad Book will include highlights of our outreach ministries and we need everyone’s help to secure ads. You can help by getting just three ads – by asking your doctor, dentist, chiropractor, hair dresser, auto mechanic, etc. to donate $25 to have their business card included. Other size ads are also available – forms and introduction letters are available at the church, or email office @ TOGETHER we can have another very successful FUNdraiser!

For additional volunteer opportunities, see the signup board in Hubbard Hall.
