welcome from the hosts

We welcome you and thank you for supporting the people of Somalia by attending this event! We are so glad to have you here with us this evening! Recently, we have been drawn to support the relief efforts in Somalia and want to put an end to any further statistics like the recent one of 29,000 children dying in Somalia within 3 months. We have been acquainted with Dr. Patricia Bailey-Jones of Master’s Touch Ministries Global for over ten years and we are excited about the on-the-ground work she provides to help the Somali people. Through our company, the Elijah Running Club, Inc. and events like tonight, we have committed in 2012 to partner with MTM Global and raise funds for their dynamic missions outreach. We encourage you to take advantage of every amenity available at this event, whether it’s the stores who have supported our show fashions, unique items you bid on during our silent auction or specialty products available through our onsite pop-up stores. Most importantly, please consider further supporting MTM Global in bringing healing, empowerment and restoration to the Somali people with a tax deductible contribution at our donation table. We join them in their passion to bring life, healing and hope to the nations. We give our heartfelt thanks to all of our sponsor stores, designers, volunteer models and staff for making this event successful. Thanks for all you do in supporting this worthy cause! Love & Blessings,

Darnell & Shalita Williams Dr. Patricia Bailey-Jones
