Our first annual fundraiser, ELEVATE 2010 will be held at ARTISANworks in Rochester on February 19th, 2010. Rehema Home has recently opened an office in Rochester to raise awareness and financial support for the ongoing work in Nairobi, Kenya. ELEVATE 2010 is our first public event, an introduction of the Rehema mission to the Rochester community.
Rehema means “mercy” in Swahili. ELEVATE 2010 will celebrate the hope and inspiration that Rehema Home brings to the lives of orphaned children like Harry, Jackl…ine and Ayub. It will celebrate the transforming power of love applied in a practical, tangible way, and it will offer to our community the opportunity to take part in this transformation on an ongoing basis.
Terese Taylor of Warm 101.3 will be the emcee for a fun-filled evening featuring singer Sofia J, FuturPointe Dance company and guest speaker Johnny Kimani. Activities and donation opportunities include a silent auction, an exhibit of artwork designed specifically for the event on the theme of “Mercy”, and new multimedia presentations highlighting our Sponsor a Child program.
Ticket price is $60, or $100 per couple and can be purchased on the website at www.rehemahome.org/elevate. A portion of your ticket and all donations are tax deductible.
Please join us in this celebration of Mercy!
