1st Annual Beauty in Brokenness Gala

The CALL in Faulkner & Conway Counties is hosting the 1st Annual Beauty in Brokenness Gala to raise funds needed for the renovation costs for a community presence in Conway. The old 2BC parsonage on The Ministry Center property will become The CALL House after needed improvements are complete. The CALL House will provide office space for The CALL in Faulkner & Conway counties, the CALL Mall (clothing and other physical needs for foster children}, a visitation room for DCFS to use with families and foster children, and other space for CALL family meetings, small trainings and other community meetings.

The theme, “Beauty in Brokenness”, is a visual description of the foster children in our care. A child that comes into foster care has experienced many traumas that cause their hearts and spirit to be broken. Through the love of Christ shown by CALL foster families, God can bring beauty out of their brokenness.  The Gala will take place on Saturday, May 20, from 6-8pm at Grace Conway-UMC, located at 1075 Hogan Lane in Conway. The CALL has planned an exciting evening beginning with a delicious catered meal, a silent auction and other festivities.  We encourage businesses and individuals to purchase a table and invite your friends. For information regarding tickets or to donate a silent auction item, please contact County Coordinator, Louise Witcher at ConwayFaulkner@thecallinarkansas.org or call  501-581-9208.
