The community should know how the proceeds are used, said Jon Baer. The supper is the men’s only fundraising event for the year. While the fellowship’s donations vary from year to year, a review of previous years provides good insight.

Contributions have been made to the Interfaith Council and the Northern Neck Free Health Clinic, said Baer. The men have contributed funds and sweat-equity in maintaining the Kilmarnock Heart Havens house that cares for five physically and/or mentally challenged residents who have no family support.

The Boy Scouts of America Troop #242 receives financial support, he added.

In addition, the KUMM have supported the following with financial gifts: KUMC Clothes Bank and Youth Group, Rappahannock District Youth Choir, National Child Safety Council, and Families of the Wounded, Inc., continued Baer. Beneficiaries also include the Middlesex Fellowship of Christian Athletes, KUMC Bus Fund, Virginia United Methodist Homes, local families in need of gifts from Santa, and the Agape Project for underprivileged on the Virginia Eastern Shore.

Dinner tickets are $9 in advance ($10 at the door) and children ages 13 and younger, free. A tempting array of desserts, prepared by the women, also will be available for nominal cost, he said. Carryout is available. Please bring your neighbor or a friend on Thursday, January 30, (4:30 – 8 p.m).

The more who come, the more who benefit, said Baer.

Tickets can be purchased from the men of the church, or the church office. Tickets also are available at Lester’s Barber Shop, EVB Bank and HeadsUp Hairworks.
