2016 CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala

The 2016 CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala was Amazing!

The aim of the CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala is improving the quality of life for underprivileged children, youth and teens through the collection of toys for the holidays. We empower our community to make an imprint on the lives of children. Our tenet is, “No one person can do everything, but we all can do something!” If we can be motivated to work together, we can make a difference in the lives of many young people and impact future generations.

The CHRISTmas “Be a Blessing” Gala is an annual charitable event aimed at providing Christmas gifts for foster care and homeless children.

The event will specifically include the following…

  • Red Carpet Entrance
  • Praise & Worship
  • Dinner & Dessert
  • Musical Performances
  • Prayer
  • Raffle Prizes
  • Spoken Word (Poetry)

With all the fun also comes the message. A message of love, a message that you are helping us share by your presence and support, a message that will be given to various children in need because of your commitment, that all children deserve care regardless of their living situation. For that, we thank you, and would like to share how we are seeking to “Be a Blessing” in this event.

Union Rescue Mission (URM) – http://urm.org
URM hosts a Christmas Store for their guests. They call it a store because they give their guests the opportunity to “shop” at no cost to them. This makes for a special Christmas giveaway because they don’t just distribute toys. Instead, guests get to select exactly what they know their children need and will truly enjoy. The Christmas Store allows guests the opportunity to shop with pride and dignity, empowering them with the ability to give gifts to their children on Christmas morning.
