2015 Calling to Connect Gala – Pictures

Pictures from the Love is… Gala on October 30th, 2015

We all need love. At Inner City Youth Alive we are learning to see love through the eyes of youth in the inner city. To many kids here love looks like… a parent who works hard to make ends meet, an auntie who always has a couch available when home isn’t a safe place to be, a neighbor down the street that lets them raid the fridge when they are hungry, a foster parent that gives them a curfew, or a school teacher that genuinely cares (delete the part about grades?). There are beautiful expressions of love in our community. But sometimes love gets distorted or there are barriers keeping love locked away from those who need it.

We believe in the kind of love that breaks through barriers. Together we can show these youth the unwavering love of Christ and of a safe space filled with people who care about them and their well-being. Please join us for an evening that will give you a fresh outlook on love in the inner city and what it means to the youth who live here.

It was a wonderful evening and we are grateful for all the support and for everyone that attended. The gala featured artwork by Lennard Taylor, music by the One3Nine Band and entertainment by the one and only Fred Penner. Special thanks to to Bixipix Photography for capturing the evening.
