Well, you folks did both last night.
The intent of the Superhero Spaghetti Supper was to encircle the Hawkins family with Christian love, raise awareness and funds for Batten Disease Research, and thank our local “superheroes.” And with God’s help, you angels made ALL these happen!
Here’s the stats from last night:
$2,947: Funds we brought in. The UMM have graciously offereed to share most all of this with the Hawkins family for Batten Disease Research. They are so grateful!!
#449: Number of people who came through the door. Think about it. The men made at minimum 449 plates of spaghetti. John washed at minimum 449 dishes. That’s a LOT of work!!
#37: Number of times the Hawkins’ table was surrounded by folks – asking questions and learning about Batten. Awesome!
99%: How full our parking lot was during peak times. This was a glorious site.
100%: Percentage of spaghetti plates that were licked clean. Again, yummy factor!
6:14pm Exact minute I became pretty stressed due to some technical difficulties.
6:15pm Exact minute God spoke to me: “Relax. You’re in my house. I’m at work here.”
6 inches: The size of the grins on Brandon and Jeremy’s faces before they left, as they were telling me about their evening.
To the Men in the Kitchen, to the UMW who brought desserts and worked the floor, and to all Families who attended and lifted the event in prayer:
YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE!
Forest Hill United Methodist Church ROCKS and I’m very proud to be a part of you!
