2Gather, an alliance of local community non-profits and ministries, came together to host a collaborative fundraising event in Pella on April 15. The event, called “100 4 100″, was hosted on Tax Day to reinforce the importance of tax deductible charitable giving. The “100 4 100″ event allowed 100+ community members an opportunity to learn about local causes and give $100 to the non-profit of their choice. Over $8,000 was raised. Over eighty guests attended the inaugural event to learn about area opportunities for philanthropy through presentations and displays. Those represented included A Call To Serve Ministries of Iowa, Bethany Christian Services, Christian Opportunity Center, Serve Our Youth, and The Well Resource Center.
