La Cause, a Protestant Foundation in Paris, will have their annual fund-raising sale again at the American Church. The sale supports the various departments of the foundation, including a listening and braille library for the visually impaired, support of orphans through both adoption and "parrainage", and "Solos-Duos" which helps alleviate solitude for those left totally on their own.

You will find antiques, toys, collectible post cards, food, books and much more. There will also be a tombola and a delicious lunch served on Saturday. Learn more about La Cause at www.lacause.org.
