Fund-raiser set in name of sister, charities; Event is Nov. 5

— Sister Mary’s Children (SMC) will be hosts to a concert dinner fund-raiser Saturday, Nov. 5, 6 to 9 p.m., at the Greencreek Community Hall.

Tickets are $10 each and all ages are welcome. Music will be by the Swing Notes. Contact Joan Riggers - 208-924-7224 or for tickets. Last day to purchase tickets is Oct. 21.

Sister Mary’s Children plans a night of celebration of the life of Sister Mary Paule’ Tacke as well as celebrating their status as a 501(c) 3 public charity. Along with the celebration, there will be a fund-raiser for projects that were important to Sister Tacke. These include the two orphanages that she established as well as the training center for young adults.

Sister Mary Paule’ Tacke was a native of Cottonwood. Her life’s work was to care for abandoned children in South Africa.

Lindsay Creek Vineyards has donated the spotlight auction item: A private barrel tasting for 10 SMC supporters. This will be two auction items. One auction item will be a barrel tasting for six, and the second will be for four people.

Additional auction items include framed original paintings by the children at the orphanage. Each painting has a picture of the child on the back. There will also be handmade African jewelry created by the young trainees at Ikhwezi Lokusa Rehabilitation and Development Society.

The evening will come alive with music by The Swing Notes playing big band jazz. Some local members include Doug McIntosh, Art McIntosh, Wendy Lindsley and Chris Cowan.

Each ticket includes potato bar, salad, dessert, an authentic South African dish, and one drink ticket for adults.
