Imara International will host its fifth annual gala, “Cornerstones for the Future” benefit this fall. The keynote speaker this year will be Imara's Executive Director, Carol Erickson.
The four cornerstones are Faith, Parenting, Education and Skills—all components of building a strong foundation that will have lasting effects on these moms and their children. Imara is dedicated to being a spiritual landing place for these young girls and their children, while providing them with a safe environment that allows them to grow as a parent and a student.
The gala will showcase how these cornerstones have evolved. Currently, several of the Imara moms are preparing to take the national 8th grade examinations. This unlocks new opportunities for them to build on their individual academic paths or enable them to pursue vocational training not available before coming to Imara.
The program will also include an entree-style meal and the opportunity to enter to win raffle prizes, silent auction experiences that include glass blowing and a dog sleeping experienceT as well as a 50/50 and a Cork & Fork experience. Tickets for the event are available for purchase online at ImaraInternational.org or check us out at the Imara Table between services beginning Sunday, October 16th. Ticket cost is $60 per person. Those with a larger party can purchase a table for 8 for $400 (an $80 savings).
Please RSVP by October 28th. All proceeds from the evening will support Imara International.
