New School Campus Fundraiser Status

The HOPE CHALLENGE 

We are SO very excited to open our new school campus August 2015 to serve the many students who have been on our waiting list for about a year and many new students that have applied recently.  
 
Furnishing the three classrooms at our new school will cost $10,000....DEFINITELY A CHALLENGE!  Knowing that we serve a God of HOPE, we started this HOPE CHALLENGE to raise the funds to make this happen
by July 31, 2015!
 
Our first HOPE CHALLENGE was a Sponsorship request to several of our friends and long time supporters.  This brought in very needed funds and got us off to a great start with $3,500.  
 
Following the sponsors, we then had the actual Jamboree on May 16th.  A beautiful day with lots of horsemanship thrills, great food, Ms Stephanie ONCE AGAIN rules for the year as the Chili Champion...winner of the Chili Contest!  At the end of the Jamboree, we received another $4,674 from sales and new corporate and personal sponsorships. 
 
Lastly our next HOPE Challenge was a TextPledge competition between classrooms at the Hudson Campus tied in with the Horse Jamboree on Saturday, May 16 from 10am to 2pm.  The classroom raising the most total
HOPE CHALLENGE pledges will win an end of the year pool party for its students with lunch catered by Chick-fil-A.  This was very exiting indeed.  This contest portion ended Monday, May 18th at 10pm.  The winning classroom is Ms. Vergie's class with a very commanding lead (see below)!  
 
This is why we serve a God of HOPE and not a god of hype!  Even though the challenge was significant, OUR GOD is more than able.  And in this very short period of time, HE through His people provided for all of our needs as
we raised $10,763! 
THANK YOU LORD JESUS FOR YOU ARE OUR PROVIDER! And thank you everyone who participated with us.  We could not of done it without you.  
You are our CHAMPIONS!
