Wrap Up on the El Salvador Event

Tuesday night’s event went really well and the pupusas were delicious. We sold over fifty tickets and most every item on the silent auction sold, bringing our total donation dollar amount to over $1000 for various El Salvador causes. Thanks to all who attended. Oh, and I snapped a photo of Professor Chris preaching!
