The Scene - The Rescue Mission Spring Gala

Posted: 07/19/2022

The Rescue Mission held its Spring Gala at the Grand Wayne Convention Center in-person on May 6, 2022, after two years of virtual events. More than 500 guests walked down the red carpet for a night of fellowship, fun, food, and friendly competition to bid on more than 80 exciting auction packages and experiences. Guests also had the privilege of hearing about life-changing programs and services, as well as an impactful testimony from a Rescue Mission graduate. The Rescue Mission extends a special thank you to the individuals and corporate donors who gave generously to raise more than $400,000 in support of men, women, and children facing a homeless crisis.

In less than a week, he and his family of six were evicted.
