The Wesley Grove UMC Men’s Group hosts our Annual Sweetheart Breakfast on the second Saturday in February each year. The Fellowship Hall is transformed with Valentine’s Day decorations, a photo booth, and tables full of food. The men prepare a delicious breakfast spread consisting of eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, fruit, and more.
After attendees finish their breakfast a live and silent auction takes place with items and services donated from local businesses. Some of our most popular items are:
- Gift cards to local restaurants such as Cantina Mama Lucia’s, Stained Glass Pub, Olive Grove, and Squisitio
- Vouchers for family outings such as movie tickets, Dave & Buster games, bowling, mini-golfing, and batting cages
- Gift certificates for local small businesses for Yoga/Pilates classes and make up studios
All donations and funds raised from the auction raises funds for the Jen Wurtzer Scholarship Fund which provides tuition assistance for families wishing to send their children to our Pre-School. This vibrant young lady, a daughter of one of Wesley Grove’s members, tragically passed away in a car accident and since she had such a love for children, it only made sense for the Pre-School’s Scholarship fund to be named in her honor.
This wonderful tradition has continued for many years and we look forward to supporting our pre-school for the years to come!
