AWAKEN’s 15th annual fundraising dinner, on April 1st, was a huge success, thanks to supporters like you!
Approximately 280 guests attended the dinner and learned about AWAKEN’s ongoing work in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan over the last year. John and Carolyn Vann, our featured speakers, shared photos and stories of their service with the Peace Corps, from 1966-68, in Afghanistan.
To date, more than $28,000 has been raised from the event—through dinner registrations, silent auction bids, Afghan bazaar purchases, and direct pledges of support—which will help fulfill AWAKEN’s mission of serving women and children in Afghanistan during the coming year.
Thank you to everyone who attended and everyone who generously donated! Special thanks go to our gold sponsors—American Health Network and Meridian Health Services—and to our bronze sponsors—Compassus Hospice & Palliative Care, First Merchants Bank, and Yorktown Manor—for their support of the evening’s events.
We’re also grateful for the 13 individuals and 11 businesses and organizations, as well as several anonymous donors, who donated items for the silent auction. AWAKEN couldn’t do its work without everyone’s help!
