Options Now 25th Annual Fundraising Dinner

by Laura Knox, Options Now staff

Options Now’s 25th Annual Fundraising Dinner was a fantastic night of celebrating God’s faithfulness, remembering His miraculous acts over the past 25 years, and looking ahead to all that He wants to accomplish through Options Now in the future.


The Valdosta Daily Times featured the evening on the front page of the newspaper today (3/17), but we wanted to share some additional photos with our friends & partners from the evening.  Thank you to those who have partnered with us over the past 25 years, thank you to those who prayed over and worked hard on this year’s dinner preparations, and thank you also to those who will join us as new partners this year.


If you were unable to join us Tuesday night, you can still partner with us.  Whether you’re interested in volunteering, donating professional services, helping at Repeat Boutique, or financially supporting the ministry, we’d love to chat with you about how you can join God’s work through Options Now.  We have a volunteer training coming up on Friday, April 15, from 9-1. Contact maryann@optionsnow.org or call 333-0080 for more details or to register.  Additionally, you can click here to go to our partner page on our website, or click here to go directly to our donation page.
