International Fest Fundraiser Well Received

On Saturday, September 21st, the Maryland branch held it’s well-received “International Fest” fundraiser.  The event was held at the warehouse in Millersville and attendance was strong.  Proceeds topped $9,500 from ticket sales and the silent auction.  A shipment of needed goods to South Sudan can run $12,000-$13,000, so the funding will be put to good use.  The guest speaker was Theil Theil, one of the “Lost Boys” of South Sudan.  He shared his life’s journey and offered words of inspiration.
