Brazil Main Street, Inc., (BMS) continues to create new ways to raise organization funds.

Recently, the group began selling fudge as a fundraiser and will continue to do so in the coming months.

Harper Studios, 111 W. National Ave., Brazil, has been designated as a pickup spot for fudge or to order the treats.

The organization purchased fudge from the Family Fudge Factory, 8915 N. CR 500 W., Brazil.

At its recent meeting, committee member Edie Richards said sales have been steady, especially at the recent Celebration of the Arts and Soul.

"Overall, it went well," Richards said. "We did halfway decent on it."

Richards said the fudge costs $10 per pound, 50 percent of which goes to Brazil Main Street.

"We're going to keep doing this," she said.

The organization has also begun planning its next community fundraiser, a day of Wine and Fudge.

Committee President Zac Chambers said the idea came together after Family Fudge Factor delivered a presentation to the group and discussion.

He added committee members have attended various fundraisers for other like organizations, giving them plenty of ideas.

"We talked about doing a wine tasting instead of a street fest to minimize our financial exposure," Chambers said, "and then the idea of fudge and wine appeared."

The organization conducted two street fests earlier this year.

Chambers said the organization has not set a concrete date for the event yet, but hopes to have it sometime around Valentine's Day.

He added the group hopes to have the event at the newly opened Renaissance Reception and Conference Center, 101 W. National Ave., Brazil.

"The main thing is we want to get our name out there," BMS Vice President Tony Harper said.

"But this is something we need to start running with now."

Let's see 516 E. National I believe is the Brazil Monument. Yeah, that ought to work. 516 E US Hwy 40 is more than likely Harper Studios.
