Dominican Auction and Dinner
Thank You!
Thank You Christ Church for the wonderfully successful DR Dinner and Auction! Julia and Julius Ariail report that the event was a sellout of 104 tickets even though 5 people could not attend at the last minute. Photographs from this gala event are here.

One auction item did not have its certificate picked up. If you purchased the Landscape Consultation, please email Julia Ariail or text or call 229-563-0074 so that she can let Sally Querin know whom to contact.

We will net $15,563 when all monies are in. That is $1,996 more than last year and the largest amount ever! In order to send 70 scholarships ($24,500) as we have for the past 3 years, we still need an additional $8,937. Trinity Episcopal Church in Statesboro and the Church of the Nativity in Dothan, AL, have helped us with this scholarship fund in past years, and we expect they will again this year. If you would like to contribute any amount to the scholarship fund, please make your tax-deductible check payable to Christ Episcopal Church with "DR Scholarship" in the memo line by June 30. Thanks again for your great generosity! Our mission team will come back on June 30 with lots of new photographs of the schoolchildren in El Pedregal to share with you.
