On Sunday, May 6th, WRM celebrated its 50th Anniversary with an evening of videos, testimony and 4x MLB champion, Darryl Strawberry sharing a moving message of a redeemed and transformed life through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This evening highlighted and commemorated the work of the Mission.
Over 200 guests attended the event hosted at the Westminster Baptist Church. Some guests enjoyed a special VIP reception including a Meet and Greet with autographs and photos with Darryl.
Through corporate and private sponsorships, ticket sales and a love offering taken at the event over $29,000 was raised for the work of the Mission.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the Gala Planning Committee- Lynette Brewer, Dave Bond, Judy Piel, Charlie Ridgely, and Judith Shaw.
Executive Director, Carol Bernstein shared the vision for the Mission’s future which includes accreditation and state licensure, repair and remodeling of the two single family homes on the Mission’s campus to be used as transitional, sober houses and the plan to expand our addiction recovery program to serve women.
