The 2014 OFC “Ambassadors of Hope” Dinner & Auction was a great success! We had an incredible outpouring of support for the children of abuse and neglect we serve.

Not only was the night a huge success – it was also full of unexpected surprises. The first was having Jason Witten stay for the entire evening. He even took on the role of the auctioneer for his signed jersey! It was a real treat. Jason also delivered a wonderful speech that provided a new mantra for OFC volunteers, staff, donors, and programs: “Be elite in all you do”. His testimony and speech disclosed it’s meaning – to bless someone in service and love, without expecting repayment or recognition. That hits the nail on the head with who we, as an organization, want to be: elite.

We were also blessed by the story of Kendall and Pam. Kendall not only attended the first Royal Family Kids Camp in 1999 but also attended camp and weekend retreats up until she was 18. She has since returned as both a teen helper and most recently as a camp counselor. In the summer of 2014, Kendall and her Mom Pam plan on being buddy counselors together for the 3rd straight year. Watch their story below.

We want to thank all who attended, supported, donated, and volunteered to make the night such a success. Know in your hearts that over 500 children will be served with love, extended the truth of Christ, and shown hope for a better future.
