    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    news article

    May 29, 2015 / By Kathleen Rubino / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    Upper New York Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb had a small request Friday morning: a cup of coffee. Well, good things come in threes, and he received three hot cups of Joe.

    “I value coffee so much, but I value Africa 360 so much more,” Bishop Webb said. And with that, he added another item to his resume: Auctioneer.

    Bishop Webb auctioned the three cups of coffee to raise money for Africa 360. The first sold for $100, the second for $200, and the final for $500.
