Fig Tree Benefit events explore credible communication

Both events at Gonzaga’s Cataldo Hall


Benefit Breakfast and Benefit Lunch are at Cataldo Hall at Gonzaga University.

Table hosts are still being recruited, and hosts are still inviting guests to fill their tables, which seat eight people.

Several speakers will share a few minutes each on the theme, “Communicating Credibly,” about how The Fig Tree media are engaged in modeling responsible media coverage. The speakers include Bishop Martin Wells of the Eastern Washington Idaho Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; Mark Kadel, executive director of World Relief;  Heather Crandall of the Northwest Alliance for Responsible Media; and Jim Mohr of the Gonzaga Institute for Hate Studies.

The programs that share The Fig Tree story begin at 7:30 a.m. and noon.

The benefit breakfast and lunch offer a time to gather those who value The Fig Tree media and people who are interested in learning about them.  It is a time to celebrate The Fig Tree’s approach to journalism and its media that connect people in the faith and nonprofit communities.

The Rev. Kaye Hult, a flute player who has been assisting The Fig Tree with an archival database, and pianist Joanne Smith will provide music.

The goal is to raise $18,000 to help cover the costs of producing these media that connect and build the credibility of the faith and nonprofit communities in the region.
