Mark your calendar! Start spreading the word! Fall Festival is more than just a fundraising event – it is a FRIEND-RAISING event.
Throughout the summer, new campers tell us that they first experienced DuBois Center during the Fall Festival. With that in mind, our marketing team gets more creative each year and finds fun new ways to spread the word at this event. They share our story – the summer camps, family retreats, Nature’s Classroom experiences and all the opportunities for church and community gatherings. But they need your assistance!
It’s never too early, to start planning for DuBois Center’s annual Fall Festival! Save the date for Sunday, October 6, 2019 and consider how you and your church might be involved.
Sharing this logo is a great way to start. Save it now and use it on your website, in PowerPoints, newsletters and bulletins.
If you or your church is interested in volunteering at the event, please contact the office at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
For over a decade, a quilt drawing has been a significant piece of the annual DuBois Center Fall Festival. In recent years, we have been blessed to have two or more art quality quilts donated to the drawing each year, which together have raised between $1,500 and $2,500 annually.
The quilts are typically donated by local church quilting groups and other friends of DuBois Center – would you or your quilting group be interested in donating a quilt for the 2019 Fall Festival? Queen size quilts seem to be the most popular, and those with designs appealing to a wide audience and made with love and prayers are perfect.
Ideally, the quilts begin traveling to local churches in August, so a July completion date works well. Please contact the DuBois Center office at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202 for more information. We’d love to talk to you about the possibilities.
Join Region 2 TONIGHT (Saturday, February 9) at St. Paul UCC in Columbia for BUNCO Night. The event supports DuBois Center and Kindercottage.
Bunco is an exciting dice game that is easy to learn. Children as young as 10 or 11 can be successful and have fun, so make sure to bring the whole family! Doors open at 6:30 pm and play begins at 7 pm. Cost to play is just $10 per person and a silent auction and 50/50 raffle will also be available. All proceeds benefit DuBois Center and our mission.
This year, Bunco Night is again being paired with an effort to “Fill the Cupboard” at Kindercottage. By February, the major food collection holidays are a distant memory and cupboards need restocking – so make sure to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the cause.
Help spread the word – invite everyone you know! Check out this flyer for more details.
