Kirk Franklin at Central Dallas Ministries
This event is a celebration of the lives we touch (and that touch us) every day in the neighborhoods where we live and work.
This year’s event will feature Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, crossover gospel king Kirk Franklin! A native of Ft. Worth, Franklin will bring to us a strong sense of community – incorporating local talent in his powerful onstage performance.
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us in October. Further details and sponsor packets will be available in the weeks ahead.
Our sponsors of A Night to Remember this year will greatly impact several exciting initiatives, including:
• The Center of Hope, a brand new outreach and equipping center, to be built at the corner of Malcolm X and I-30. This unique campus will address nutrition, health care, wellness, hard and soft employment skills training, access to high-quality grocery options, jobs and community renewal.
• Continue in our role of spearheading the development and support of a significant number of permanent supportive housing units for the chronically homeless who at present live on our streets and in night shelters.
• Deepen our commitment to provide high quality, nutritious food to our neighbors in need. We will not simply focus on how to distribute more and more food, but rather continue to ask why our neighbors do not have access to the healthy food they need and desire.
I look forward to celebrating another A Night To Remember with you.
