Auction to raise money for Ugandan youth, schoolhouse

In The Field Ministries, a non-profit group based in North Bend, will hold a live and silent auction and fund-raiser, as part of an effort to raise $100,000 for a school in Uganda, Africa.

The event is 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 9, at Cascade Covenant Church, located just off exit 32 in North Bend.

Auction items include a one-week time share stay in Hawaii and three nights at a Lake Chelan resort, as well as items from Uganda and local businesses.

The event, which also includes a “Dessertfest,” is free; all are invited. For information, contact Kimberly Calhoun at (425) 888-3211.

In The Field is working to help a small impoverished village in Uganda called Rwenjiri (pronounced Rainjily). The school there currently has mud school rooms, which makes learning difficult as the children have respiratory problems from breathing in the dirt, and are also bothered by insects.

Through June 18, Sam Lawrence is visiting the Valley from Uganda. He will be visiting the schools who have participated in the Adopt a Classroom program, assisting the ministry.

Lawrence is spearheading the ministry’s “Mission Possible,” recruiting people to create or join teams who will raise money for the school house. Each school house costs $10,000. When their mission is accomplished, each team will get their team name put on a plaque on the school room that they helped build.
