Successful Night for Open Arms!

Open Arms Worldwide (OAW) is a not-for-profit, Christian organization dedicated to the spiritual, moral, emotional, physical and social enrichment of children and youth who live in under-served or forgotten communities around the world – communities where families and children are at higher risk of becoming victims of poverty, crime, violence, addiction, abuse, and social marginalization.

This organization was born from the realization that the most vulnerable, neglected, scorned, ignored, and all-too-frequently abused group of people in any society are its children.

Last week, I had the privilege of attending their GALA to celebrate 10 years of hard work!  It was great night of testimony, of good company, music, and great food at Wolf Trap.openarms

Here are just some quick highlights.

  • It was their biggest event yet at 200 guests!
  • Their goal of $30,000 was surpassed!
  • Many of the guests were able to meet and interact with missionaries visiting from Brazil
