CUMMING, Georgia – Members of the Salt Life Church will be selling cookbooks to raise funds for local missions as well as other organizations in need within the county.

Printed by G&R Publishing, the cookbook “From Our Table to Yours” is full of tried-and-true recipes collected from the members of the Salt Life Church. These recipes were selected to be mouth-watering yet easy to prepare. Many meal ideas are found in these pages from healthy choices to desserts.

The Salt Life Church is a smaller church with members as big as life itself. Their staff is devoted to making every member feel like they are part of a very special family. Every visitor feels welcomed every time at this loving and friendly church. Everyone is welcomed to visit.

One of the highlights from the many great contributions this book contains is Mama Nea’s Baked Macaroni and Cheese, found on page 21. Submitted by Renee Quick, this recipe is a fabulous choice for the true cheese-lover. On page 35 (and listed below), you’ll find a recipe for Veggie Burger Stack, a feast for any health-conscious eater, submitted by Margaret Chamblee

When asked about the process of putting this cookbook together, cookbook chairperson Diana Craver said, “Our mission began by a simple thought, a plan and a venue. We met in the church one afternoon after the service to discuss the plan. Everyone was thrilled to jump right in and start submitting recipes. Margaret Chamblee had the daunting task of editing every recipe, and then it was organized and approved by Margaret, Nora Craver and myself. Our experience with G&R Publishing has been a very positive one. We highly suggest contacting them if your organization needs a way to raise funds.”

Creating the recipes you find in this cookbook will be a fun, and a wonderful experience. There are some surprises in the book as well, such as a section for kid’s crafts, how to set your table, and much more. If you have wondered about healthy eating, the pastor’s wife Nora, spent many hours compiling some healthy tips to nourish our bodies. Furthermore, there is a section about fasting for body and soul.

These books are a great value at $10.00 per book and are a great gift idea for the upcoming holiday season. They can be purchased at the Cumming Fair from 10/3 to 10/13 or you can contact the Salt Life Church at 215 Advantage DR, STE. 200, Cumming, GA 30040 or call (770) 549-1856. You can also find Salt Life Church on Facebook & Twitter.

Shock Rocks™, POP’RS® Exploding Flavor Crystals Offer Easy Fundraising Opportunities

Press release from The Fundraising Network

Hot Products’ Tickling Sensation a Huge Hit with Kids

Neenah, WI (November 2008) – Raven Manufacturing announced today it is offering unique opportunities for schools, churches, youth sports teams and other organizations that want to raise money.

Shock Rocks™ and POP’RS®, which are produced by Raven Manufacturing, are a fun and exciting new addition the fundraising world. POP’RS® are flavored seasonings that can be sprinkled on foods from ice cream to yogurt to broccoli to corn to enhance their flavor and make them more appealing to kids of all ages. Shock Rocks are eaten like candy right out of the pouch.

Shock Rocks are small candy crystals of flavored energy that explode in the mouth and come in four flavors – lemon, grape, sour apple and sour watermelon. POP’RS exploding candy crystals come in strawberry, cinnamon, butter and color burst flavors that can be sprinkled on desserts and vegetables.

“The popping and tickling and laughing sensations will explode in your mouth,” said Raven Manufacturing representative David Hesson. “It’s an inexpensive, yet effective way for clubs and sports teams to raise money.”

Hesson, whose company produces the popping crystals at a plant in Wrightstown, Wis., said Shock Rocks were developed as a fundraising vehicle for his youth soccer team. “We raised more than $500 in one weekend,” he said. “If it worked that easily for us, it can do the same for other youth organizations.”

Nominally priced at just $1 per pouch, organizations can earn a 45 percent profit on each case of Shock Rocks or POP’RS. “The best part of this is that no one else is selling a similar product,” Hesson said. “These are not the usual candy bars or lollipops, but are the hottest candy product on the market.”
