2017 Annual ABC Charity Auction

This year’s cause was that of raising money to provide solar energy to the LifeNets business center in Malawi.

The running theme through the entertainment this year was “Around the World.” As guests arrived, they were greeted by friendly faces, festive flags, and finery from around the world. A delicious array of international appetizers was served in the cafeteria. Then the lights were dimmed, and the show was ready to start.

The acts featured places such as India, Australia, Mexico and even Amish country. Since the class has several international students, many felt right at home. A carefully planned storyline tied in all the skits together—the tale of two ABC students who made a special plane trip around the world in search of the “cake prophet” and a missing legendary cake.

In between acts, Jason Lovrien and Aaron Jennings auctioned off a wide variety of delectable desserts—everything from giant peanut butter cups to luscious layer cakes. Also, in a separate room, a silent auction raised money by offering a variety of fantastic items. Gift baskets, toys, small appliances and handmade objects were just a few of the things sold. The entire event raised $7,471.

Guests enjoyed an evening full of music and laughter. And through this event, the students formed even more into a dynamic team. With special thanks to all that helped out, attended and donated, the class moves forward with added excitement to continue serving God’s people.
