Our very first fundraiser was a rummage sale held in November 2000. It was a big success! We made $4,000 in three days.
On March 17, 2001, the residents of Harvest Bend Subdivision held a barbeque dinner benefit. They raised $1,915.00 for the fund.
Shae Ugron, Pampered Chef Consultant held a catalog party for the fund - we received $190.00. Thank you.
AMF held its first annual barbecue dinner and auction on June 16, 2001, at the Houston Farm and Ranch Club. It was a wonderfuld day with lots of food, volunteers and items to be auctioned. We had two minor problems - the flood was the weekend before and our advertisement didn't happen until the week after the event. It was a very successful event with a lot of entertainment. Melvin Adams, former Harlem Globetrotter, was very funny and entertaining. We want to thank Melvin for donating his time to our event. He also brought with him Tyrone Smith of the San Francsisco 49ers and Sedric Clark of the Baltimore Ravens. These are very funny men that like to have a lot fun. Thanks for the entertainment guys! We raised approximatley $5,000. The items that we have left will be put on eBay in the coming weeks if you are interested in purchasing any of them.
AMF held its Second Annual Live/Silent Auction and Luncheon on May 18, 2002, from 12:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The location - New Life Christian Fellowship located at 18525 F.M. 529. There were clowns, face painting, moonwalks, games, a live band, a lemonade stand with sno cones and cotton candy - lots of entertainment - and lots of items to bid on! KSBJ Radio was on hand with a live broadcast. We had lots of fun and lots of food! We had a $4,200 profit ($8,000 + made less our expenses). We still have items to sell and are still donations coming in. Channel 39 provided us with news coverage and it was a very good story. We were very happy and very impressed with Katie McCall. Thank you Katie!
