CRESTVIEW — Wanda Sue Thompson is $1,655 closer to a healthy liver.

Friends, family and Full Gospel Tabernacle Church members helped raise money for the 58-year-old with a chicken-and-dumplings dinner and bake sale on Friday.

"It went above and beyond our expectations," Janet Lundy, Thompson's sister, said.

The church kitchen was busy with volunteers preparing plates with a side of green beans and a piece of cake for dessert.

It’s a familiar scene for the church’s membership, which enjoys hearty feasts — especially when they help others.

"We are a church that loves to cook and eat," said Jean Marie Belle, one of 10 volunteers. "It’s for a good cause and we are glad to do it."
