In a twist on the kind of city-vs-city betting we often see, the bishops of Chicago and Ohio have joined with ERD to use this historic World Series match-up to raise awareness and funds for Episcopal Relief and Development
Bishop Jeff Lee of the Diocese of Chicago and Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of the Diocese of Ohio have a bet on the World Series, but it has nothing to do with what happens on the field.
Lee thinks the number of generous Chicago Cubs fans is greater than the number of generous Cleveland Indians fans, and he has a pound of Chicago-style hot dogs that says so.
Hollingsworth and a pound of comb honey collected from the hive at Bellwether Farm, the diocesan camp and retreat center, say Lee is wrong.
Whichever bishop is right, Episcopal Relief & Development and its partners around the world will be the winners.
Make your donation to Episcopal Relief & Development here if you support the team that hasn’t won the World Series since Harry Truman was in the White House (that’s Team Hollingsworth).
Or, here if you support the team that hasn’t won since Moses was playing T-ball (that would be the Cubs or Team Lee).
The prize goes to the bishop who rallies the greatest number of supporters. So, please spread the word!
