You are invited to the 'Growing Hope Banquet' ...
"Our son, husband, dad, and brother — Mark Van Tienhoven — from Carstairs, Alberta, has been on a journey of healing from addiction to drugs and alcohol. He enrolled at the Teen Challenge Alberta Men's Centre in Priddis, AB about 16 months ago. We are so thankful that Mark has now graduated from the program and is living a new life — free from his addiction — and he is excited about his life, family and work.
Our desire is to give back to the Teen Challenge program by holding a fundraising banquet to help raise funds for their Capital Campaign to expand the Alberta Men's Centre. Teen Challenge is building a new expanded facility on their current property — to hold 24 student beds, plus 8 intern beds. With the Alberta Men's Centre having the highest graduation rate of our Teen Challenge Canada centres and the longest wait list per capita, we are so excited to be able to help raise the remaining funds to see this new facility finished, which is so desperately needed.
We are calling our fundraising banquet, the "Growing Hope Banquet", because God planted 'HOPE' into Mark's life! It will be a special evening featuring testimonies from the Alberta Men's Centre students and graduates. Mark will be our Master of Ceremonies for the evening and our Auctioneer!
We are excited to share with you what Christ has done in Mark's life, and in the lives of many other Alberta men. Please consider joining us to support the building of their new expanded facility.
