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!
