Community Church of Issaquah hosts fundraiser for Haiti relief trip

September 20, 2011

By Staff

In order to raise funds for a missionary trip to Haiti in the spring, Community Church of Issaquah will host a dinner and talent show at 4 p.m. Sept. 24.

More than 600,000 Haitians still are homeless following the earthquake that struck the island nation in January 2010, according to the church.

Along with members of American Baptist churches around the region, volunteers from Community Church will travel to Haiti for nine days in April 2012. Their goal is to aid missionaries on the island in battling cholera, and helping with economic and educational development.

The dinner and talent show begin with an art show and auction featuring several local artists at 4 p.m. Dinner is at 5 p.m., followed by the talent show with entertainment from former Issaquah Philharmonic Director Duane Bowen, barbershop group Symmetry and karaoke.

The church is at 205 Mountain Park Blvd. S.W. For the dinner and show, tickets are $10 per person or $25 per family. Email info@commchurchiss.org or call 392-6447.
