Thanks to all who made the Ohio Golf Outing a success on Saturday! You can find some photos of the day here. Just under $12,000 was raised to benefit Aim Right.
Staff from Youth Haven Ranch in Picacho, Arizona, are traveling to Phoenix tomorrow to put on a Kids Club program for us. Excitement is high! We are grateful for their willingness to come and share with our kids.
Artful Expressions is a fall event Aim Right is hosting on November 6-7. Music + spoken word + comedy + coffee & dessert = a great time, for a great cause. RSVP soon to reserve the evening of your choice (clicking on the flyer will enlarge it for readability).
We’re grateful for Cakes for Causes partnering with us in this event. Baking for non-profit causes is their passion, and they are on deck to provide a lot of yummy items for the dessert buffet.
I did not get a photo of last night’s packed-out teen Bible study, but 35+ teens were in attendance (possibly a record for a Monday evening!). There were at least two van loads of teens picked up, plus a number who came via their skateboards. Ro (pictured below) did a great job of sharing about the parable of the talents and his personal journey with Christ.
Since this is a highly transitional area, with families moving quite often, it is not unusual to lose touch with kids or teens that may have been involved in Aim Right programs at one time. That happened with two brothers several years ago, when they moved away from the Projects, and we did not know where they had relocated. Guess who came to Bible study yesterday evening? One of those boys, who is now 15. His name was fresh on my mind since I had just been going through our Youth Haven files yesterday and found the brothers as campers who went there in 2009.
