An ongoing fundraising drive has successful at the end of July last month with the money raised up to more than $16,000.00 at Nusabaruku. Under the umbrella of Gizo parish; Nusabaruku Catholic community had to pull up its socks and started paying off the dues as required by all Catholic community zones, in and around Gizo parish.
Nusabaruku Catholic community being one of the zones that make up the Gizo parish community would need to pay an annual contribution of $7,000.00.
This in mind, including other commitment for our Catholic community in Nusabaruku the church and missionaries – the community split into 3 groups, having their own leaders, to do fundraisings through the month – and the outcome of their fundraise efforts to be publicly announced at the end of the month. With the little drama, this to show appreciation to the team that raised the highest funds.
I hope that this would ignite a spirit of competiveness, and thus boost morale in fundraising.
Fundraising includes contributions, Bobo night, card games, and sales of cooked and uncooked foods throughout the month.
Next day, the new month that was on Sunday 1 August after the Holy Mass celebration, the fundraising committee announced the wining group. The highest raised funds to be crowned, and have the privilege of first serve at the table.
Total raised was $16,913.00 and the group ranking as follows;
Group 3 (Anthony’s group) $7,381.00
Group 2 (Naou’s group) $5,020.00
Group 1 (Tomas’s group) $4,512.00
The committee has convey their sincerely thanks to the participating teams and more so to their friends and supporters for their generosity in help they rendered.
