This year’s hybrid event offered both an in-person gathering as well as a live-stream option so that many could be connected. It was so great to be able to gather in person after 2 years of virtual-only events. The evening featured videos highlighting some stories of the impact of FACE. We also had a Wall of Fame featuring 10 individuals who have been part of the programs of FACE and who are now working and providing for themselves and their families in meaningful ways. It was great to have many of them attending the banquet and now giving back by donating items and services and also becoming donors of FACE. It is so encouraging to have folks who have experienced the care, resourcing, and development that FACE offers and have been able to move on to the next chapter of their life, while staying connected to FACE.
We are deeply grateful to those who attended, volunteered, donated items for the raffle and auctions, and generously donated. Together we raised over $35,000 in net revenue! This goes directly to continuing the work of FACE restoring hope and renewing neighborhoods. It was a wonderful evening of inspiration and hope.
If you were not able to join us, we invite you to watch the program on our website at FACEfresno.org. Feel free to forward through the dinner and raffle parts, but don’t miss the special surprise presentations.
