When is a fundraiser not a fundraiser? Recently an invitation surfaced inviting interested parties to a dinner where LDS apostle, Elder Rasband is the keynote speaker. The cost of the dinner is $250 a plate and it's sponsored by Scripture Central (formerly Book of Mormon Central.) Many people questioned the implication of the invitation and took to social media to discuss it. Is this a fundraiser that an apostle is speaking at? Mormonish cohosts Rebecca and Landon dive into the question as they research past Scripture Central fundraising events, changes in the online invitation during their investigation, the mission of Scripture Central and their use of donations, the relationship between Scripture Central and the LDS church, and more. We think you'll find all our findings as interesting as we did.
