"That wasn't worth it." - Community Member.
In an attempt to "experiment and try new things... who knows!", Benton House's most recent monthly fundraiser leads to uncomfortable conversation and urgent goodbyes.
"I tried it." Alex J. Colston, a recent volunteer of Benton House reports. "I tried it... I don't know what I was expecting."
Benton House monthly fundraisers typically ignite a feeling of community and solidarity amongst community members, but this month's fundraiser has proven to be "basically an absolute, complete failure."
"We usually have businesses sponsor our fundraisers. They typically do a good job." said Resident Staff member Ernie Perez. "But this month the sponsor was just this guy named Kieth who lives down the street. Who we've never really talked to before. Maybe next month we'll try Jackalope or Maria's or something."
Though community members have reported being "off-put" and "revolted" by April's fundraiser, many of them have agreed to give Benton House another chance. "I'll give it 'nother shot, shure." says community member Ben Huey, "I hear their cookin' up a clam chowder pool party or somethin'. I don't care!!!!!"
