CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Cedar Rapids continued a century-long tradition with the 100th Czech Goulash Day on Sunday.

People were able to get a variety of desserts made by churchgoers.

This event is the church’s largest fundraiser, raising around $20,000.

“It feels great, it makes us feel great,” Jum Zachar, with St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church, said. “This is our 100th year like I’ve said, so we’ve got a great crowd, lots of excited people, and hopefully we can entertain them and make their day enjoyable.”
