As a staff member at ChristianWorks for Children, you have a sweet window into people’s generosity, and you get to see them give of their time, of their treasure, and of their talents…and the results are powerful…especially when everyone participates. The blessing of our friends and partners was especially evident this past week as we saw how God would use each person for His purpose as they joined forces with ChristianWorks.
Last Thursday was the official beginning of “auction season”! Fifty-four people gathered together, most of them volunteers representing their respective church congregations, to learn all the details of this year’s Celebrate The Children Auction, scheduled for October 6th at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. Our theme is “Good Vibrations” where we’ll be celebrating everything fun about the 60’s. The kick-off evening began when “Bubbles,” a 1965 vintage Airstream arrived, complete with bubbles and music, and yummy cupcakes were distributed to our guests from her serving window.
The “fun” will continue on auction night when we are joined by Mike Williams, an inspirational entertainer who has made millions of people laugh, but who has a life story that will leave all of us marveling at the grace and mercy of God.
Our hope is that you will mark your calendars and make plans right now to join us for this special night that will benefit the children and families served through the ministries of ChristianWorks for Children.
Volunteer and giving opportunities abound over the next five months as we plan and prepare for the auction. To learn more about how you might help, please contact Carol Pauley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-960-9981.
