2019 Benefit Dinner a Resounding Success

GraceWorks Neighbor serving Neighbor dinner in early April was a resounding success. Nearly 280 guests helped raise over $101,000. Numbers are still finalizing, but we believe this was the largest dinner fundraiser to date!

It was a great night, with amazing musical entertainment by We The Kingdom with Scott, Ed, Franny and Martin Cash. Dozens of silent auction items were snapped up, and a surprise dinner activity demonstrated to guests some of the problems and solutions GraceWorks staff and volunteers face each day.

Al Pramuk, CEO of Gresham Smith, the dinner’s presenting sponsor, shared a message about their company and why they support GraceWorks. Valencia A. Breckenridge, GraceWorks CEO, shared more about GraceWorks vision and strategic goals. There was a video testimony from Charity Faith, a neighbor of GraceWorks’, and she surprised the crowd with a performance of her original song! The night ended with a message from Dinner Committee Chair Patrick Baggett and a closing song from We The Kingdom

We are so thankful to our many sponsors, guests and dinner committee for making this event such a powerful night for our neighbors.
