Our Spaghetti Dinner & Silent Auction Fundraiser

This past Friday was our biggest adoption fundraiser so far. We had a big spaghetti dinner and silent auction at the church I grew up and I'm so happy to say that it was successful. We had so many people show up to support our family and the journey to bring Titus home. There was fun competition over the silent auction items and so many people interested in learning about the adoption process and our journey thus far. 

We were blessed to have people donate all the money needed for the purchase of the food and plates/silverware so everything we made was 100% profit! So awesome. We had friends and family donate Texas Rangers tickets, round trip airline tickets, and some of my online friends donated things too. And, of course, all of our family and friends that showed up to cook, set up, serve, and tear down. The success of the fundraiser was first and foremost a God thing but definitely wouldn't have been possible without all of the people He has put in our lives and blessed us with. 

I used prints from our home (Globe is a discontinued print from here. Romans 8:15 print can be found here) and repurposed the spaghetti sauce jars + a little burlap fabric for some of the flower center piece vases.  

The bowl of bracelets that you see is another fundraiser we've been doing through The Apparent Project. If you have any big fundraiser needs coming up (adoption, mission trip, big purchase for a church ministry, etc.), you should really check out The Apparent Project. You can help others while fundraising for your own cause. Love that.

If you're following me on Instagram, you've probably already seen the spaghetti dinner and silent auction total...BUT just in case you missed it, we raised...

Hallelujah! Praise Jesus! Chipping away at that next big payment a little bit at a time!

We are so thankful that we have our next immediate payment already funded and saved for, so this amount will go to the money due once we accept our referral. 

If you have any questions about putting together an event like this, I'd love to help. Just shoot me an email! xo
