Here at home, the El Hogar 2020 team has been busy preparing for our big fundraiser - making our famous and much-sought-after Gingerbread churches and houses. As well as the team, we have many alumni and Friends of El Hogar helping out. First is the rolling and baking of over 400 parts before construction can begin.
After they are all completed, we will have put in more than 450 hours.
The decorator has put their personal touch on each one they do and they are all beautiful, all with edible parts.
We are so grateful for those who come to help us with this fundraiser and on one day, we enjoyed the visit of 4 colleagues from Wawanesa Mutual whose company gives them a day a year to work with a community charity and they chose us! These ladies were super creative with much detail in their work.Thanks Ladies!
Each final product is unique and ready to be sold at our Christmas Market at St Luke's Nov 30th and at each Sunday coffee hour after that. Cost is $30 each or 2 for $50.
