For decades, Ellis Island served as America’s “gateway to the world” as millions of immigrants arrived from every nation on earth… it’s where many of our own ancestors first set foot in this country. What better place to celebrate a ministry that extends to all parts of the world?
There are several ways you can help make the Gala a success: by attending or sponsoring the Gala; by participating in our raffle; and by purchasing an ad in our Gala journal.
The raffle winner will be announced at the Gala on September 7. We must receive your filled-out tickets no later than September 1 to be included in the drawing.
Suggested donations are: $5 per ticket, $25 for six tickets, or $50 for all twelve.
No donation is necessary to win, and you need not be present for the drawing. Three prizes will be awarded: a Grand Prize of $5,000, and two Second Prizes of $2,500 each! You will be notified if you win, and your winnings sent to you by check.
