October 2020 Fish Fry Fundraiser a Great Success!

11/2/2020

Golden, piping-hot fried fish and delicious hush puppies were just the beginning of a delicious, mouth-watering lunch at Friday's October Fish Fry Fundraiser hosted at First United Methodist Church in Lebanon, TN.


Healing Broken Vessels sold $10 meals which included fried fish, white beans, cole slaw, hush puppies and a cake or brownie. However, fried fish was not the only item available on the menu. Jerk-chicken plates, a crowd-pleasing favorite, were also available in regular and spicy flavors. Ordering was conveniently available from your computer, mobile device, or you could just call your in your order from http://www.healingbrokenvessels.org.

This center is needed in the community. I'm glad to support HBV.

ꟷ Tennessee Senator Mark Pody


Filling Your Belly with Good Food, for a Good Cause


Healing Broken Vessels of Wilson County hosted another fish fry fundraiser this past Friday, October 16, 2020 with great success.

“My sincerest gratitude and thanks goes out to the Wilson County community, First United Method Chuch of Lebanon, the amazing staff at Healing Broken Vessels, Senator Mark Pody, The Wilson County Chamber of Commerce, and supporters of HBV from around the country who took the time and energy help us out this time around,” said Diantha McLeod, Founder of Healing Broken Vessels."

HBV Board Chairman Robert McLeod adds that the Wilson County-based women's center had met their projected goals and was happy with this event's results, "We're definitely going to have another one soon!" he laughs. "We got on the ball this time around. With great planning, and a great staff, these events just seem to run smoother and smoother."

The outpour of community support for Healing Broken Vessels had attracted many supporters and local businesses that were trying to get in a quick lunch while on their break. The center's Director of Information Technology Brad Ewing impressed with the turnout. "The support was amazing. But then again, turnout's always good for HBV events here.

“This center is needed in this community,” Tennessee Senator Mark Pody says. “I'm glad to support HBV.”

The menu for the fundraiser, Healing Broken Vessels sold $10 meals which included fried fish, white beans, cole slaw, hush puppies and a cake or brownie. However, fried fish was not the only item available on the menu. Jerk-chicken plates, a crowd-pleasing favorite, were also available in regular and spicy flavors. Ordering was conveniently available from your computer, mobile device, or you could just call your in your order from http://www.healingbrokenvessels.org. Food was donated to the Healing Broken Vessels fundraiser by local stores, churches, businesses and HBV Board Members.

Orders were available for both carryout and delivery.

Working out of the First United Methodist Church at 415 W. Main St., the space was graciously donated by its church members for HBV's use. HBV staffers spent the day preparing food, frying food, p packaging it for everyone who came to pick up a meal, or preparing orders for delivery.

Due to Healing Broken Vessels cancellation of the center's annual October Fashion Show Fundraiser earlier this year, HBV decided that women's center should get a little more creative this year to raise funds, pooling the staff's cooking skills, logistics and technical resources together once again for another successful fundraising event.

Additional fundraisers will be announced at a later date by the Healing Broken Vessels Women's Center on their website at http://www.healingbrokenvessels.org. You can also check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/HealingBrokenVessels for frequent event updates.
