Sun Valley Presbyterian Church would like to thank the community for their continued support of our ninth annual Strawberry Festival on June 17. We had another successful festival, raising over $8,000 for local and worldwide missions. Those who attended enjoyed a gorgeous Wisconsin summer day, delicious strawberry food, 20 local craft vendors and a variety of raffle items (the worth totaling over $2,000). Our crew hand-picked 400 pounds of strawberries at Skelly’s Farm Market.

One hundred percent of the proceeds support local missions including Caritas, Hands of Faith, Beloit Hospice, The Dutter House and Beloit Domestic Violence Center.

Many businesses and individuals from our community donated to the festival by donating raffle items or buying ads. We thank them for their continued support of the festival.

Thank you again for your support. Look for Strawberry Fest again on June 23, 2018, for our 10-year anniversary.
