White Christmas Fundraiser

The Annual North Mobile Planning Council's White Christmas Dinner was held November 6 at Ebenezer United Methodist Church.  This event brought churches together for a wonderful evening of food, fellowship and a collection of $19,066 for the United Methodist Children’s Home!  Over the past seven years this event has raised $131,890 in support of the Children's Home. What a wonderful blessing for the children of the United Methodist Children's Home!!  Thank you to all who worked to bring this event together.
