Brats N More

Brat and corn

Christ Lutheran Church, Sedona, Ariz., calls its annual fall fundraising event “Brats N More,” and it certainly is “more.”

Participants might leave having purchased a stay at a local resort, an Arizona Cardinals autographed football or an airplane ride above the Sedona region. None of the money that’s raised stays at the church, but goes to Sedona and Verde Valley food pantries.

Last fall more than 80 members and visitors attended, raising $12,000 through silent and live auctions.

For about 10 years until last Oct., Redeemer Lutheran in Bangor Maine held an OctoberFest with brats, beer and the trimmings (after all, Kate brewed beer for Martin, right?).  Often, a parishioner palyed accordian.  Unfortunately, we had to halt the tradition last year.
