The La Jolla United Methodist Church (LJUMC), along with other churches of the UMC denomination, has been raising awareness and collecting donations toward reducing the burden of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. The church has reached the end of the Imagine No Malaria campaign and, having accomplished an inspired pledge total, plans to celebrate.
Since a number of community donations were received after an article announcing the project appeared in La Jolla Light, LJUMC is opening the celebration to all!
The community’s African-themed party will start at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 28 at La Jolla United Methodist Church, 6063 La Jolla Blvd.
It will be preceded by a 10 a.m. worship service.
Tickets will be available on site (adults $5, children under 12, free) for African food, music, and silent auction (including, among other items, a Tony Gwynn signed baseball and a Sheryl Crow signed guitar). There will also be a petting zoo and other activities for the kids. All proceeds will go to the INM campaign to eliminate malaria in sub-Sahara Africa. Questions?
