REYS 40th Annual Fundraising Banquet - March 25, 2022 at 6-8pm

You are invited to join us for our 40th Annual Fundraising Banquet on Friday, March 25, 2022 at 6pm. This event will be located at Landis Hall in the Junction Center (1875 Junction Rd, Manheim, PA 17545) and will feature Kari Tavella as our guest speaker. 
Ticket reservations are required.

About this event: During this ticketed event, we will celebrate all that God has done through our ministry for the past 40 years. The evening will include ministry updates, a delicious dinner catered by Stoltzfus Catering, and an inspiring message from Kari Tavella.

About our speaker: Kari Tavella (pictured),  the wife of 2021 America’s Got Talent winner Dustin Tavella, had quite a successful run in the entertainment industry. As a model and actress, Kari has been featured on billboards, television shows, commercials, and movies. Amidst her success, she hit rock bottom with drugs and alcohol and in 2015 decided to walk away from it all. She knew pursuing a radical relationship with Jesus was more important than her career… especially if it meant losing herself in the process. She is passionate about sharing her story and hopes to captivate people in a way that will help them avoid the destructive path she found herself on. Her mission in life is to nurture, protect and restore God’s design to broken people through her extreme transparency.

Watch her testimony video here.

Summer Sprint to 600

Our annual backpack drive started because of one student’s desire to help his classmate. The students were involved in a homework program, and they could earn points to get prizes. There was one student who was saving all his points, and when asked why, he said that he was saving it for a friend who did not have one. Since then we have given out around 600 backpacks a year to people in the community. We have partnered with many businesses and churches around the area who collect backpacks for the annual drive.

Save the date and support our ministry during Lancaster County’s greatest giving day of the year.
