Stettler to fundraise for Guatemala Mission trip

The FCS is inviting Stettler and area community to help them with raising funds for the Guatemala Mission trip in July this year.

With the date of the Guatemala Mission trip approaching closer, the group of students and chaperones from the Fellowship of Christian Students (FCS) who will be making the trip from Stettler and area are inviting community members to participate in the fundraising efforts.

One of the many fundraisers will be through hosting a night of painting at the Stettler Alliance Church on Thursday, March 16.

The event will be through “Paint Nite,” an organization that sends out an instructor to guide attendees to paint in a crowd-setting.

“The cost of each ticket is $45,” said Claire Stewart, one of the chaperones on the trip. “FCS will also serve some refreshments and desserts.”

There is a minimum requirement of people who have to sign up, at least two weeks prior to the event, according to Stewart.

“We’re encouraging people to sign up now rather than wait till later and only people aged 14 and above can attend,” Stewart explained.

The team has already raised $20,000 but need to raise another $20,000.

“The community support has been excellent so far,” said Amore du Toit, one of the main organizers and a chaperone of the trip. “Anyone interested in knowing more about the trip can visit the FCS Stettler Facebook page and can donate directly to the account set up at the Credit Union.”

Some of the other fundraisers that the group will be organizing are weekly bake sale at the high school during Thursday lunch, dessert night on March 4 for $10; paint night fundraiser at the Alliance on March 16 for $45; afternoon spring tea on April 29; garage sale and movie night on May 11 and 12; car wash and Aspen Ford test drive on May 13.
