Black & White Party

























Last night, the Social Concerns Committee hosted Night of Discovery, an event to raise funds for Mending Kids. The organization helps children from around the world travel to the US for medical procedures. A church member recently housed a child and her mom from Zimbabwe, so the organization was close to our heart.



We went for a black and white theme. I created luminaries out of tap-on lights, white paper and black ribbon. I used a projector to write on the letters and then used black paint and glitter. At the last minute we decided we wanted a menu board. I brought my menu board from home . . . complete with a painted-on colorful rooster. I covered up the rooster with white flowers I fastened out of coffee filters and napkins from the church kitchen. I was quite proud of this!
