Brown Bag Lunch Fundraiser


We started out an amazing weekend delivering lunches to those businesses that ordered a brown bag lunch to support our Brown Bag Lunch fundraiser. We delivered lunches to Clayton Homes, BBS Insurance, Ken's Pawn Shop & Department of Public Safety. It was a blast! We delivered 38 lunches in all. We appreciate everyone's support and we actually have been thinking about doing another lunch delivery in the future and seeing about getting more businesses to participate :)


Saturday, we were manning our station at the Etoile Volunteer Fire Department selling lunches from 11 am to 3 pm. We had an amazing turn out and met some awesome people! There was about 5 of us out there and what a beautiful day it was! We sold about 80 or more lunches and...drum roll please....we raised.....$760.00! It ended up being a great turn out. I want to thank those that came out to show their support. Some bought lunches, others just wanted to make a donation and let us know what a great thing we were doing for Randy and Millie. I would also like to thank the following for their help:

  • Mrs. Mandy - For standing out by the road and dancing and moving with her sign, so that people would stop by and buy a lunch. Also for driving around to the boat ramps selling lunches as well as keeping us entertained for 4 hours. 
  • Randy's Mom, Kathryn - For making some amazing cookies (that we're still eating on) to sell with the lunches and for sticking with us the whole time making sandwiches and getting people to buy raffle tickets. 
  • Mr. Hottman & Mrs. Hottman - Thank you for all of your hard work! Your contributions and for staying out there selling lunches with us! It means a lot that you were there. 
  • Everyone who stopped and bought a lunch, everyone that gave an extra donation, those that came by and only gave a donation and those that bought raffle tickets. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are what made this a successful fundraiser. I am so happy to be apart of such an amazing community! 
These great people came by to show their support and buy some lunches too! 

I will be posting more picture of our Brown Bag Lunch Event and...if you would like to know how our work day went on Sunday..I"ll post more about that tomorrow morning :) Good night. God bless.
