Celebrating The Great Adventure 2007
With God’s blessing and a tremendous effort by staff and volunteers, our donors generously gave $864,000 at The Great Adventure auction, exceeding this year’s goal of $700,000. We thank our generous donors for these great results.
Special thanks go to the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund, which contributed a tremendous matching gift of $150,000 and inspired guests to contribute more than $500,000 (including the Macdonald Fund matching gift) in the Change-A-Life segment in our auction. We're also grateful for the generous and committed donors who sponsored tables, invited friends, participated in the program and gave beyond what we hoped.
We cannot take credit for the results of last Saturday’s auction. Of course, we worked hard and did our best. But God guided our hands and blessed our efforts. More importantly, God moved the hearts to people to attend, to participate and to give. We need to thank Him for answering our prayers, meeting our needs and blessing our event with a tremendous response.
I thank God for each of you and for His blessing on our service together.
