Kuchen for a Cause

Posted: Updated:

Summer is definitely over but Crystal Springs Baptist Camp in Medina is bustling with hard workers.

Stephanie Scheurer has the story.


"It's actually a bread dough is what your outside is and then with a custard filling with fruit," says Melissa Mahin, Kuchen Event Organizer.

This, is Kuchen.

One thousand seven hundred and sixty three to be exact.

"We needed 485 dozen eggs, 340 quarts of cream, 725 pounds of sugar.

Nearly 30 volunteers -- form an assembly line of working hands.

All of this Kuchen is pre-sold and the proceeds will go to help a family in need.

"This is unreal how everybody come together and give of their time and money to do this for me but I'm so very thankful for each one that's doing this," says Marlowe Schlecht.

Marlowe experienced a severe brain bleed and his mother in law, Verna, has gone through treatment for lymphoma and colon cancer - all within the year.

"It's a close family deal with both of these incidents being that close together so it's, but it's trying, but with the way everything goes and the way God works that's just the way things happen a lot of times and you work through it," says Luke Pfaff, Son of Verna.

"Our church has come together to do this over the years and help people in need and until it's you, until you're the recipient, you know we were just blown away. Even though we do it for other people all the time, it's just a blessing to be the recipient and we're thankful for everyone's involvement," says Rochelle Bosche, Daughter of Marlowe.

With everything but the kitchen sink needed to pull off this colossal, Kuchen event --

"It was very, very overwhelming because the most that I have organized is 859 so this was double that so it was very overwhelming but we're pulling it off," says Mahin.

The most special ingredient, is love.

In Medina for KX News, I'm Stephanie Scheurer.

As you can see, making Kuchen is quite the process.

Mahin says two volunteers needed to be their at 2:30 in the morning to get the dough started.
