This year we had around 300 attendees and a team of volunteers at the Mayo Hotel and helped us raise over $150,000 to benefit the ministry of CPO and over $30,000 for scholarships to help girls go back to school or finish school!
We had a great evening with Karen Larson graciously emceeing again. Pastor Chris gave a wonderful presentation of the history of CPO and master auctioneer Jay Litchfield led our live auction. This year’s “Best of the Best” sold 100 tickets, and Aaron Hargove (an adoptive dad) won! He chose the J David Jewelers’ CPO necklace and gave it to Cheryl! J David, who was at the gala, was moved by Aaron’s generosity and added another necklace back to the live auction!!!
As you know, CPO is an all volunteer organization and we wouldn’t be able to have the impact in the lives of these young women and babies without your help. If you weren’t able to attend the gala but would still like to give to CPO, please visit our donation page where you can make a one-time gift or setup a recurring one.
Photo cred and huge thanks to Melissa Barnes of Melissa Barnes Lifestyle Photography for donating her time and excellent work.
