Our yearly dinner and auction is our primary fundraiser for each year. We are already in planning for our 3rd annual event on Friday November 2nd, 2018. We are excited to announce Comedian Jarell Roach has agreed to not only MC the night for us, but also provide the entertainment. He is a great comedian and is a huge believer in Jesus Christ. Make sure it is on your calendar, you won’t want to miss his show. We will be doing both a silent and live auction like we have at previous events, but this year we will be having a sit-down meal. In addition, we will here testimonies from youth who have had experienced a Christ Spike because they attended a faith-building event supported by p4:13. Our goal for this year is to have 350 attendees and raise $65,000. Hope to see you on Friday November 2nd, 2018!
Here are some highlights from our past events:
We held our first event in November of 2016. It was a huge success and we were so amazed at how God blessed our ministry. We far exceeded our expectations for being a new nonprofit and for it being our first event. We were able to share our vision for p4:13 and in some cases, introduce people to what p4:13 does for the very first time. In addition, our home church’s youth pastor Alex Hall shared his memories of Marcus and how he has seen God work in the lives of those Marcus impacted. We had 12 event sponsors, 220 people attended, and we were able to raise $27,000.
We held our second event in July of 2017 and it was even more successful than the first event, despite a short window for planning. We were blessed to have Coach Ron Brown as our guest speaker. His passion and love for Jesus Christ and youth was inspiring. He announced the release of his new ministry Called to Complete and we were proud to donate 10% of all funds raised that evening to help him get started. We were also able to provide an update on the work that God is doing through p4:13 and how many people had been impacted. We had 24 event sponsors, 290 people attended, and we were able to raise $41,000.
Remember to mark your calendars for Friday November 2nd, 2018 for p4:13 Ministries 3rd Annual Dinner and Auction!! Come spend an evening honoring God and Marcus through praise, laughter and stories.
