Wow!!! What an amazing time we all had at the fundraiser dinner/silent auction gala the other night. There were about 150 people who attended. We had a very successful silent auction with many great items won. We had a wonderful dinner provided by the staff of the Crowne Plaza Asheville. We had amazing live jazz music performed by Kat Williams. And we had a moving presentation that presented both the great need in Haiti as well as the opportunity to make a difference. I am pleased to announce that this event raised over $6,000 for our ministry in Haiti. Praise God for His provision.
Maria and I would just like to say a BIG thank you to all those that attended and supported this great cause. We hope that you will continue to stay involved in our ministry to the people of Haiti. It was a pleasure getting to meet many of you. We also just want to again say a HUGE thank you to Joe and Kristi Hughes, good friends of ours, who put this whole fundraiser together through their business Events Unlimited. They did an absolutely amazing job and we are so thankful for their friendship and their giving heart.
Here are some pictures of a wonderful and successful evening. To God alone be the glory!!!
