Mount Jubilee Scores Big in Family Fun Walk and Auction!
On Saturday September 11th, more than 175 energized Mount Jubilee Ministries’ supporters rallied together to send a resounding statement of commitment to the special needs population in our area. With increasing support from the local community, MJM’s mission of bridging the gap in programs for the unserved and underserved teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Rockingham County and the surrounding areas is alive and well!
Mount Jubilee far exceeded their goal of $65,000 with its 6th Annual Family Fun Walk and Auction, by raising over $81,177! And donations are still coming in! Financial gifts and in-kind goods were procured throughout the community from corporate, business, church and individual partners, leading to the continued success of this signature fundraising event.
Following team pictures and pre-walk festivities, MJM walkers headed out on the 2.9 mile journey. The walk incorporated the 9/11 Memorial Service and Monument Dedication at the Reidsville Fire Department. Reidsville’s own Bruce Lindsey, retired Vice Admiral, delivered a 2 themed message: Be Ready and Never Forget. Many of our attendees remarked on what a moving commemoration it was.
Following the walk, Pennrose Park Country Club served everyone a delicious barbecue lunch with all the fixings. The exciting and competitive online auction concluded at 9:00 pm that evening, adding icing on the cake to an extraordinary fundraising event!
MJM’s Executive Director, Cecil Cottrell enthusiastically commented, “Thanks to each of you who participated, volunteered, gave generously and supported MJM’s Family
Fun Walk and Auction. Along with our appreciation for funds generated from the event, our commitment of expanding programs to the special needs population remains steadfast!” Attendees left assured of their partnership with MJM in this grassroots effort to provide needed programs and services for those who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Committed to their core belief that ALL people, regardless of their ability, have a God-ordained purpose for their lives and must have the opportunity to live as contributing members of society, MJM moves forward with continued expansion. MJM’s His Path Developmental Day Program is currently operating day programs in Rockingham and Forsyth Counties, with plans to launch a third program in Guilford County soon.
Opportunities to continue impacting the final revenue of this signature event remain open throughout September. Donations may be made online at MountJubilee.org or by mailing donations to MJM, PO Box 81, Reidsville, NC 27323.
