Our 7th Annual RiseUPTrenton Banquet was a wonderful success! Pastor Ted Winsley shared a powerful message of the power of God in the lives of the Eagles football team, on and off the field. Pastor Winsley also shared an inspirational message with our StreetLeader Team.
Our Silent Auction and Raffle Tables saw plenty of folks engaged in chasing that elusive winning ticket or bid. Our Event Team and Board of Directors went above and beyond, as usual, to secure excellent offerings for the evening.
The UrbanGirl Jewels Team was there and had a large selection of beautiful earrings for sale. Guests mingled and there was even some folks dancing to the lovely music provided by Ambiance, The Duo!
After a delicious dinner, Ted Winsley gave the Keynote Address and we learned that “it’s not about the ring”; it’s about the grace of God and team work. After Ted spoke there was “surprise” live auction of a pair of official Eagles cleats signed by Darren Sproles, donated by Pastor Winsley!
We ended with our tried and true Fund a Need Action Auction and, thanks to the generosity of those in attendance and those who donated in advance, we will move into our summer months with generous funds dedicated to the StreetLeader Program and our SummerCamp Programs.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made the night so special- all to benefit the children & teens who are part of our UPT family!
