2014 Wall of Sponsors

Check back next week as we post our Sponsor’s Wall of Thanks!

We are already hard at work on plans for our annual pasta cook- off. On Saturday, August 16th from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m., We will gather at Central Baptist Bearden on Deane Hill Drive for live music by the Early Morning String Dusters, face painting, balloon animals, a kid’s area full of fun and 16 pasta teams representing our 40 committed family host and support congregations competing to be crowned the “Pasta Grand Champion”.  To top it all off, we will have our live and silent auctions for scrumptious dessert creations. Thanks to supporters like you, last year’s event was an even bigger success than we could have imagined. We had 700 people in attendance and we raised over $60,000 for Family Promise!
We are excited to have Central Baptist Bearden host our event this year. Parking is plentiful and the lovely air conditioned fellowship hall, complete with sound system, will be just perfect.  A large tent connected to the fellowship hall entrance will provide a stage for the band and overflow tables adjacent to the kid’s area.
All proceeds go to Family Promise of  Knoxville : Uniting our interfaith community and local resources to help children and their families without homes become self-sufficient.
