Fall Harvest Tasting at the Milwaukee Public Market

Friends of FMFM gathered at the Milwaukee Public Market for our Fall Harvest Tasting fundraising event on October 14, 2016. Proceeds funded the build of a rainwater harvesting system for the Rwandan Orphans Project - a home for street children in rural Rwanda. More than $5,000 was raised in this short evening!

Attendees enjoyed food demonstrations; a silent auction and 50/50 raffle; food, wine and beer pairings; live music and a presentation by FMFM's Maria Nicholas-Groves, Holly Baumgart and Sarah Fracek explaining how the proceeds will benefit the children in Rwanda. We were lucky enough to receive a video message from our friends at the Rwandan Orphans Project as well!
