Timeline of Events
With our new time format, the Silent Auction will be over by 6 p.m. (before dinner!), so please don't be late or you'll miss it.
Fruits of the Harvest (FOTH), our silent, and not so silent, auction and themed dinner party has grown into St. Timothy's largest fund-raising event over the last 18 years. Almost $507,000 has been donated to benefit over dozens of beneficiaries. FOTH is a parish-wide event which involves large numbers of volunteers who have a great time working together to do the work He has given us to do. Attendees get into the fun of the night by dressing according to the theme. You can check out the fun we had on our Photo Gallery page.
Come join us to support our Outreach Ministries. We will need your help, especially in view of recent budget cuts to Outreach. FOTH will be the main source of revenue for Outreach beneficiaries this year.
Get into the spirit of Aloha to raise funds for all of our Outreach ministries. The Kahuna David Bray interprets the Aloha Spirit code as "Come forward, be in unity and harmony with your real self, God, and mankind. Be honest, truthful, patient, kind to all life forms, and humble." The word “Aloha” has a real spirit that is exhibited by those who have the spirit. Show your Mana (spiritual power and soul) to benefit Outreach and be God's Hands beyond Saint Timothy's doors. Aloha means more than “Hello” and “Goodbye.” To Hawaiians of old, Aloha meant “God in Us.”
Silent Auction and Raffles - Your donations are what make this night a success. Help our silent auction by soliciting or donating gift certificates from restaurants. Dinners hosted by parishioners, game tickets, special outings, vacation homes, and entertainment certificates are welcome. Talk to us if you need ideas.
Visit our blue FOTH Bulletin Board out front or in the parish hall after all three services to ask questions from our hula helpers and take a look at the sign up sheets. We also have donor forms and donation solicitation letters there, and in the office at Grace House, or in the Parish Hall entry. Sign up to donate items, and to help out with committees to make this a great night and to give your much needed support to our beneficiaries.
In addition to our silent auction, raffles, no-host TIKI BAR, Fund-A-Need, a Hawaiian dinner, Heads or Tails Game, Raffle for the reserved parking spot, we will have Island music and much more. Come dressed as yourself or get into the spirit in your version of Island wear. From Hawaii we are flying in purple, dendrobium orchid leis for which you can order and pre-pay on your registration form.
Our very tasty food will be traditionally Hawaiian. The hardworking hulahelpers in the kitchen will provide the appetizers, and dinner will be Kalua pork (pulled pork with cabbage; Chicken Katsu (breaded chicken cutlet with sauce); BBQ beef: stir fried rice; Vegetables with sauce; citrus salad; and a delicious coconut cake made by Carol Moore.
