The first annual Cross Connections "It's a Spring Thing" event was held on March 1 in the Grand Marquis ballroom at the Marriott on Washington Center Road. The evening was a tremendous success and raised more than $28,000 for the ministry!!

Close to 270 people came out to enjoy an evening of fine dining and fellowship before Christian comedian Jeff Allen brought the house down with laughter!! Cross Connections would like to thank Grand Event Sponsor: Thrivent Financial for Lutherans - Greater Hoagland group; and Event Sponsors, A Party Apart, and Davon Bultemeier and Cindy Houser. We would also like to thank all of the wonderful people who made this evening a tremendous success!!
