Stone County had a BBQ Fundraiser on Friday, May 29th. It was held at 6pm at Flatwoods Baptist Church in Mountain View. The $10 per person tickets included a pulled pork sandwich, baked beans, potato salad, desserts and drinks. The Twang band from Mountain View provided live entertainment.
One of our current foster mothers spoke to the crowd about the needs in foster care and the foster care experience, followed by a video. Also some of the launching leadership team members made brief presentations, and Ashley Herring with The CALL in Cleburne County talked about the work The CALL has done there. Approximately 200 people were in attendance (including our wonderful volunteers) and the event raised over $3,600 to help with the start-up expenses!
