Rejoice Lutheran Church in Geneva will hold a Big Bottomless Bowl Bash fundraiser next to Graham's 318 Coffee House at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4. All funds raised will bring relief to the homeless of the Gulf Coast regions surrounding Biloxi, Mississippi and Slidell, Louisiana. Church members will serve different gumbos inspired by the Creole cuisine of the Mississippi region and beyond. Cost is $5 for one bottomless bowl. Musical entertainment will be provided by Graham's resident favorite, Patrick James.

"Join us for a great bowl of Cajun culinary mojo and a great opportunity to serve fellow Americans who need help," said Rejoice pastor the Rev. Lou Quetel. "While the Gulf area has recovered from Katrina, the needs of poor folks are great. Basic shelter and food security are real issues for a lot of families.
