FUUY Coffee House

Friday March 16, 7-9pm, Follen Community Center

Come and enjoy a wonderful event, showcasing the many talents of our Follen youth!
For those of you who have not been before, this is one of FUUY’s biggest fundraisers of the year with a theme centered around the service trips to New Orleans. Additional funds raised will help to plan and attend other service trips/activities that make up the core of our spiritually grounded social actions.
Please come ready to enjoy the night’s events with coffee, tea, cider, snacks, and deserts! FUUY youth will be coming around to take orders at your tables so that you can concentrate on the trivia questions, lip sync battles, and the Swedish fish-eating competition.
While you are not required to make a donation at the door, suggested donations are between $10-$25.
We can’t thank you enough for your support and we look forward to seeing you there!
