FAQ's

Q. What is the purpose of this event?

A.  For several reasons.  First, to celebrate the conclusion of our “Row the Boat” series. Second, to share fellowship, food and fun with other OG members. Third, to hear how “our giving” can help Orchard Grove meet its current and future needs.

 

Q. Why is it at Plum Hollow?

A. Several OG members belong to the club, and offered the venue so the evening could be held at a premier location, rather than require OG to spend time and dollars dressing up our Worship Center.

 

Q. Is the $50 ticket purchase the goal of the fundraising effort?

A. The $50 ticket price only pays for the cost of the event.  Any surplus dollars will come back to OG, but the church’s needs are far greater than that.  Perhaps “fundraiser” is a misnomer for the dinner.  It’s really about each of us doing our part through our regular giving.  As we’ve learned during the series, that’s another way we “row the boat.”

 

Q. Will there be an additional requirement to contribute that evening? 

A. Not at all.  But, attendees will benefit from learning more about OG’s needs, and what it takes to operate “our boat.”

 

Q. Why should I pay to hear The Katinas when they will be at both services the following day?

A. The Katinas are only part of the evening’s festivities. The goal of the event is to share fun, food and fellowship with OG members in a country club setting.  The Katinas are preparing a special set of popular, non-religious songs, though, to help make the evening special.  You won’t hear them play these songs in a church service.

 

Q. It says “formal attire.” Does that mean tuxedos and formal gowns?

A. Absolutely not.  Men are expected to wear suits and ties, while ladies should wear appropriate dresses or pant suits for a country club setting. No jeans.

 

Q. Will this be a church-wide effort?

A. Yes.  All of us need to understand that it takes everyone participating by giving what he or she can do to help Orchard Grove continue to help people find and follow Christ.  We all need to “grab an oar”, not just by volunteering, but also by being faithful givers.  Those who attend the dinner will have an opportunity to “seed” this effort.

 

Q. Anything else I need to know?

A. The event is limited to 200 people due to the size of the facility, so don’t wait too long to purchase tickets.  Plum Hollow is in Southfield, at (21631 Lahser Rd. Southfield, MI 48033).  There will be valet parking. The evening is scheduled to last from 6:30-9:30pm
