February Newsletter

It’s hard to believe February is almost over! The weather has been so mild it’s difficult to believe that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting 6 more weeks of winter. What does he know?! Either way, we’re gearing up and getting ready for spring here at Family Promise. We’ve got several events coming up that we’re excited about, and hope you are too!

Imbibe will be held in April!! Imbibe is a festival of fine wine and food benefiting Family Promise. Cork and Barrel generously donates the proceeds of this event to us, and we’re incredibly excited to be a part of it again this year and are grateful for our continued relationship with Cork and Barrel. This event is a lot of fun, and we always look forward to it! It’s a two part event with a dinner on Thursday, April 13th at J.Wilson and a wine tasting event on Saturday, April 15th. Check out the event details here

Are you ready for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and cheering on the mighty Jayhawks?! We’ve got just the gear for you to show your love and support for Lawrence’s favorite basketball team and for Family Promise. We have four XL shirts and a flag signed by the entire men’s basketball team. In addition we have an replica Jalen Wilson Adidas jersey (this one is not signed). We’ll be doing a silent auction for the signed shirts, flag and Wilson jersey. Save the date as this one will begin on March 8th and run through the 15th. 

It is Spring Campaign time! We have an anonymous donor who will match 100% of every dollar raised up to $25,000. If you donated $200, that means our anonymous donor would match that for a total contribution of $400. Life and our day to day necessities are so expensive, imagine what it must be like for the families in our programs. I can’t wait to see how our Family Promise network knocks this one out of the park! You can donate now by following this link.

And don’t forget about the upcoming runs!

The Westward Ho! 5K and Fun Run is May 6th., Family Promise has been the primary beneficiary of this 5K for four years! And we look forward to this partnership yearly. You can sign up here.
