SERV Ball 2015: Who Will You Invite?
October 15th, 2015 by Steph Whitacre
We are excited to host our 3rd annual SERV Ball on December 7, at the Biltmore Ballrooms, located in Atlanta’s trendy Midtown district! In addition to a delicious dinner served by Bold American Catering, wine bar, and silent & live auctions, guests will enjoy an evening of celebration and entertainment with some of Atlanta’s finest artists. Our hosts for the evening will be Tom Sullivan, Joseph Sojourner, and Cara Cunningham Kneer. Dinner will be followed by a Christmas concert performed by Chinua Hawk & Friends. And as though that isn’t enough, a VIP reception will take place from 6-7 pm, featuring live music by Victoria Canal from Spain.
As our largest annual fundraiser, the SERV Ball plays an integral part in how God is using SERV globally. At SERV Ball 2014, attenders raised enough funding to drill a new well in the desert of Kenya, sponsor 6 more children at our House of Hope, provide over 100 new water filter buckets in the Dominican Republic, feed tens of thousands globally, and so much more! Imagine what we can do this year at SERV Ball 2015!
In an earlier blog post, Jack Chapman, shared how his journey with SERV began less than a year ago when his mom invited him to join her at SERV Ball 2014 (click here to read Jack’s post). That evening, Jack listened to Tom Sullivan share about the need to bring clean water to our brothers and sisters in places like Kenya and the Dominican Republic. This exposure to a problem in which he could be part of the solution launched Jack into a journey that took him all the way to Kenya as part of our September mission team. Jack ends the post he wrote pre-Kenya with this thought:
“Reflecting on how I got from the 2014 SERV Ball to typing up this blog post, I can see how it took small steps, persistence, and focus along the way. However, nothing would have happened had God not encouraged my mother to introduce me to SERV. So if I come back from this experience with a life transforming perspective, I will have my thoughtful mother to thank. I love you, Mom!”
You have no idea the impact you can make on a family member or friend in the United States, meanwhile joining what God is doing globally, by inviting him or her to be your guest at SERV Ball.
Make this a Christmas season to remember with friends and family at SERV Ball. It’s going to be an incredible night full of celebration, laughter, music, and making a difference in the lives of those served by SERV International.
