)-- This year's Gingerbread House Build-Off, as always is presented to you by the Spokane non-profit Christ Kitchen. Local company Living Water Lawn and Tree Care will be the key sponsor of the event. Mike Fairburn, Living Water's owner says "We're proud to be able to partner with Christ Kitchen in this fundraiser. They do fantastic work in our community and we share the same values: outreach, sharing the love of Christ, and a real love of the Spokane community. It's great to be able to help in any way we can."
The event raises funds for Christ Kitchen. Who's mission is this: "Christ Kitchen is a job-training project providing work, instruction, discipleship, support, and fellowship for women living in poverty in the Spokane area. Through the production and sales of gourmet dried food products and catered meals, this project enables women to learn to work, to become employable and, eventually, to support themselves and their families without reliance on government programs or destructive relationships."
"Christ Kitchen recognizes the myriad of issues making employment and self-sufficiency difficult for women in poverty. We offer a work setting in which any willing woman can gain skills and competencies which in turn improve their confidence and self-image. Helping low-income women learn the love of Christ and achieve emotional and mental stability as they become self-reliant, stable workers and citizens, is the goal or our growing community."

The event is December 9th at the Davenport Hotel. It will run from 10 am to 4 pm. Children can build their gingerbread house for $7, and all proceeds will go to benefit Christ Kitchen.
