The 2018 Koinonia Cares Charity Auction will be held where The Koinonia Foundation first began--Wake Forest Baptist Church, 107 E. South Avenue, on Saturday, March 24, 2018, 5:30 p.m.- 9 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
Formed in 1990 by the Koinonia Sunday School Class at Wake Forest Baptist to help the disadvantaged in the community, The Koinonia Foundation of Wake Forest has grown to be an interdenominational non-profit providing financial support for organizations that address human needs which are not otherwise adequately funded and periodically to individuals demonstrating a critical need.
The event features a full dinner and a silent and live auction of unique items and valuable services donated by local businesses, artists and individuals.
Tickets are $20 per person with only 175 being sold. Tickets may be purchased online at www.koinoniaWF.org or at these downtown Wake Forest locations:
Wake Forest Area Chamber of Commerce, 350 S. White Street
Ollies Café & Gifts, 213 S. White Street
Hope House is this year’s Ministry Focus and will benefit from a designated funding time during the auction. Hope House, started in 2011 by Friendship Chapel Baptist Church Senior Pastor Dr. Enoch Holloway and his wife Minister Marion Holloway, helps Wake Forest youth grow educationally, socially and spiritually.
Also, during the event, the Koinonia Board of Directors will present its Russell Dew Community Service award to an individual or individuals who selflessly serve others, especially the disadvantaged. The 2017 recipient was Tommy Killebrew, a long-time board member and past president of The Koinonia Foundation.
