MOUNT GILEAD — The Morrow Little Theatre recently received a check for $3,500 from the Williamsport Grange #1815. The check was from the proceeds of the Celebrity Chef Omelette Breakfast fundraiser held Sept. 29 at Seniors on Center and hosted by the Williamsport Grange to benefit the Morrow Little Theatre.
Each omelette was served by one of 24 local celebrity chefs including elected officials, judges, business leaders, Morrow Little Theatre Board Members and actors. Chefs served approximately 100 omelettes to attendees.
The breakfast is a signature fundraiser for the Williamsport Grange and is the brainchild of Past Master Lisa Tharp. This is the fourth year the Williamsport Grange has chosen a local charity to benefit from this fundraiser.
Having learned of the Morrow Little Theatre’s need for new sound and lighting equipment it was decided that the Morrow Little Theatre would be this year’s recipient.
Joey Powell, President of MLT expressed his appreciation to the Grange for hosting the event as well as the community for coming out to support the cause.
“I can’t thank the Williamsport Grange and all the volunteers who helped enough for all their hard work as well as the outpouring of support from the community. We are thrilled with the amount raised.”
Donna Carver, Master of the Williamsport Grange also shared her thanks.
“On behalf of the members of Williamsport Grange, I want to thank everyone who volunteered, donated, sponsored, attended or assisted in any way so that we could raise funds for the Morrow Little Theatre. Special thanks to the Board of Morrow Little Theatre, actors and members, who volunteered their time to be runners helping out wherever needed. Thanks also to our celebrity chefs as we would not be as successful as we are without you.”
The event included the opportunity to have a “Star Photo” souvenir taken by LeAnne Gompf. Attendees could dress up and pose on the red carpet.
The Williamsport Grange holds this fundraiser annually with the recipient being various Morrow County organizations.
