EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2014
Christian Life Tabernacle is a non-profit organization in the Memphis community serving the needs of families and youth. We recently organized our youth group with a goal to train our young people to be leaders in our community. We would like to help develop young leaders by cultivating skills such as: team spirit, goal setting and achievement, quick thinking under pressure, perseverance and responsibility. Part of our mission is to travel to different states and meet other youth groups and demonstrate these skills by learning to work together as a teams and put in practice the skills to become successful young adults.
While the team is too young to solicit, they have worked hard by holding a photo fundraiser and a comedy banquet for the local community. They would now like to hold a silent auction in April, which would hopefully bring in the necessary funds for them to travel to six cities chosen this year for their travel. These cities are as follows including our own city: Memphis, TN, Buford, GA, Birmingham, AL, Little Rock, AR, Tulsa, OK, Ocala, FL where we will meet and interact with other youth groups ages 8-17. Your contribution will allow an opportunity for them to excel in public speaking, team interaction and satisfaction of meeting specific goals. These youth groups will also have an opportunity to be judged by their leadership qualities and could walk away with a team trophy or individual medal from being the most prepared group or young person representing our organization.
