Based on the festival name alone the folks at Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church deserve sweet success! Their mega-fundraiser for hungry kids is Car(a)mel Fest.
The irresistible-sounding event is Sunday, September 13, 10:00 – 4:00. at Mt Carmel Church, 1701 St. Anthony Parkway in Northeast Minneapolis.
For those who can actually get enough caramel, there will be food trucks with an equally appetizing selection from local food vendors, a bake sale with expert judging of the crown the winner of the inaugural Car(a)mel Fest Bake-off.
Local musicians Matt Wilson, Kara Doten and the Goods will perform throughout the day. There’s a silent auction, activities for kids and more!
Real emphasis of the day is the fundraising effort, with all proceeds earmarked for The Sheridan Story, a partnership among a unique community partnership in which participating churches and organizations sponsor a school, as of this Fall a total of 25 schools. Sponsorship involves participating organizations paying for packing and distributing food directly to the children.
The Sheridan Story provides the logistics, sourcing, and organizational expertise necessary to execute the process of providing the food supply. The goal of the partnerships is to feed hungry while developing a lasting relationship between the school and the community.
