Urban Ministry's Table of Hope set for Sept. 11


Urban Ministry's annual fund raiser, Table of Hope, is an opportunity for supporters of their work to gather to celebrate, share a gourmet dinner, and bid on valuable items donated for silent auction. Table of Hope guests will enjoy a delightful evening emceed by Urban Ministry Board Member and FOX6 News Anchor Janet Hall. Doors at The Club in Homewood will open at 5:30 p.m. for bidding, and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. and program at 7 p.m.

This year, attendees are in for a treat with guest speaker Barbara Dooley, wife of former University of Georgia head coach Vince Dooley, and mother to Dallas Cowboys receivers coach Derek Dooley. A widely sought-after speaker, Barbara shares inspirational stories with her own special brand of Southern charm and hilarity, and always leaves her audiences rolling with laughter with captivating tales of mischief and mayhem behind the scenes of college football.

"The wonderful support of our donors will help us raise $100,000 to fulfill our mission of serving vulnerable people through programs of compassion and wholeness," said Rev. Melissa Self Patrick, Executive Director of Urban Ministry. "It enables us to be catalysts for community development and transformation in West End."
