TC Germanfest Offers To-Go Dinners for Fall Fundraiser
A Traverse City tradition continues despite its annual events getting canceled and replaced with coronavirus-friendly adaptations.
Their menu options have already sold out. All proceeds from the traditional German meals benefit the Trinity Lutheran Church and School.
In a typical year, they have a huge, tented celebration but they’re excited with the response they’ve seen for this socially-distant fundraiser. They sold more than 600 meals.
“When we switched from a German feast to a Germanfest we thought we’d curbside food and that we’d be able to sell 400 tickets…and it’s been overwhelming, the reception.” said committee member Sherry Galbraith.
They’re hoping to raise $8,000 to fund technology and structural upgrades inside.
The Germanfest is also hosting an online auction to raise money. For more information go to https://tcgermanfest.org/
