An Incredible Night!
Friday night was unforgettable! We hosted our 50th Anniversary Celebration Gala at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ, where more than 300 of you joined us. Ukee Washington, Co-anchor of CBS's Eyewitness News, emceed the evening and we raised over $50,000 in sponsorships.
We want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended and celebrated with us, and for making our 50th Anniversary such a special event! We reflected on the past with a video tribute that showed the legacy of Fellowship House and all that has been accomplished. Ukee Washington then honored the contributions of our five honorees: Dan & Ellie Cheney, Charles & Lucile Sayre and Marion Burrowes. He also spent time with some of the children, as we listened to their touching responses to why they love attending Fellowship House.
Our Children’s Program Director, Lisa McKinney then spoke about the present—the crucial role that Fellowship House plays investing in the lives of South Camden’s children and spoke of the wonderful and exciting results we are seeing. Following this, Board Members Jeff Tucker and Karen McGuinness unveiled architectural renderings of an exciting new vision for our facility, and invited us to dream about changing the lives of the children and youth of tomorrow. Stay tuned for even more exciting news on these plans and how you can be involved.
