The Refuge 2018 Fundraising Gala

The Refuge 2018 Fundraising Gala

Sunday, October 14, 2018

6:00 - 8:00pm

Grove City Church of the Nazarene

4770 Hoover Road, Grove City, OH 43123

Once a year, we gather to celebrate a year of transformation and healing from addiction.

At The Refuge, we see Christ changing lives every day. We want to share those stories with you, and help ensure that we can be a part of even more victories over addiction in the coming year.

What to Expect:

The theme of The Refuge 2018 Fundraising Gala is Visions Of Hope.

At a time when all you hear in the news about addiction is skyrocketing death tolls and the devastation left behind for the survivors, The Refuge has been a part of a different story.

Our story is one of not just recovery, but transformation. Men and women at The Refuge aren't just “recovering addicts.” They are reborn through Christ. In 13 months, they go from dependence to discipleship, from brokenness and isolation to a life full of meaning and restoration of relationships.

In 2018, nearly 40 men will complete The Refuge – almost double the number from a year ago. Every one of them represents not just a life saved, but a family restored, and a beacon to draw in others who are still lost out in the darkness.

This year, our Women's Ministry opened its doors, and has already been home to the type of growth and healing that can only come from God. All of those men and women are part of a movement that is now starting to change the story of addiction.

We invite you to join us as we rejoice for the blessings we have received, and to be a part of providing for even more Visions Of Hope in the coming year.

Ways to Help:

  • Attend the banquet: You'll see for yourself what The Refuge is all about - and have a chance to invest to continue changing lives affected by addiction.
  • Be a Table Captain: Commit to bring enough people to fill a table of 8 at the event with friends who are ready to join our fight. Can you engage new people to get involved?
  • Be a Table Sponsor: Sponsor one or more tables for $200 each to help cover costs of your table's meals so that everything we raise that night goes straight to changing lives affected by addiction.
    • Sponsor a table in the name of your business, or in honor of someone who's gone through The Refuge.
    • Table sponsor names or logos will be displayed on the tables, as well as in the program for the evening. 
    • You can be a Table Sponsor even if you don't attend the event.
    • If you are a Table Captain, you can sponsor your own table as well, but it is not required.
