Join us for an entertaining evening & help impact local lives.
Missions Possible is Plymouth Church’s annual fall fund-raising event. Ticket sales and donations enable the Plymouth missions team to support the local community and beyond by providing support to over 20 organizations and programs including Love, Inc., Burlington Transitional Living Center, Church World Services, Milwaukee Rescue Mission, The Night Ministry-Chicago, Feed My Starving Children, and as-needed disaster relief such as assistance provided to the 2017 Burlington flood victims.
A fun evening is in store including a gourmet dinner by renowned Gooseberries Catering, live musical entertainment, live and silent auctions, and generous raffle baskets.
Event & raffle tickets are on sale now at Plymouth Church or The Coffee House at Chestnut & Pine. Purchase tickets by October 12 to receive six free raffle tickets for a chance to win one of six baskets. Raffle tickets are sold in advance and at the event at a cost of six for $5 or an arm’s length for $20. Supporters need not be present to contribute with a raffle ticket purchase.
Check the Plymouth Church Facebook page for updated announcements about auction items and raffle baskets that will be available for bidding. Guests will enjoy the energetic live auctioneer, Terry Schmaling, who turns bidding into entertainment.
Dinner includes a four-course buffet meal, gourmet dessert and beverages prepared by Chef Mike of Gooseberries. Wine, beer and spirits are available at a cash bar. Auction items include a two-night Las Vegas air and hotel package for two and other generous donations of merchandise and gift cards from area businesses and Plymouth Church members with values ranging from $50 to $1,500.
Entertainment will be provided by Mad Bark, an energetic band whose musical performances range from songs by the Rolling Stones to Lady Gaga.
Plymouth Church’s longstanding fall fundraising tradition includes past events named Fall that Jazz, Auction on the Apple Farm and Autumn Fest on the Apple Farm. The annual event began with a chili dinner hosted on-site in the church recreation hall 21 years ago and has grown to better accommodate a growing number of guests in the spacious and beautiful setting of Burlington’s Veterans Terrace at Echo Park.
