Margaret Trost, a former resident of Monona and Cottage Grove, created a foundation 13 years ago to help a Haitian community bring food and educational opportunities to impoverished children.
The What If? Foundation will hold a fundraising event Friday at Lake Edge Lutheran Church to go toward a school-building project in Port-au-Prince and the group's food program, according to the Herald-Independent.
The event runs from 6-8 p.m. and will raise money through at at-will offering at the door, plus an auction and bake sale.
According to the foundation, it's able to help provide 6,000 meals a week, 194 school scholarships a year and additional camp and after-school programs for hundreds more.
Lake Edge Lutheran Church is at 4032 Monona Drive.
