This Sunday, Brandon Valley kids are pitching in to help one of their classmates go to college.
Exchange student Kofi Gunu of Ghana has gotten a nice scholarship to Augustana college, but he still needs $10,000 for tuition. That’s ten times more than his father, a librarian in Ghana, makes in a year.
There will be a fundraiser benefit for Gunu from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday at United Celebration Church in Brandon. The event will include food, games, a silent auction and a Jell-O salad contest.
Organizers are still collecting items for the silent auction. To donate, contact Justin and Jana Lovrien at firstname.lastname@example.org.
