This year we are pleased to announce singer, songwriter, humorist, and award
winning cartoonist Ben Crane as our featured guest. His blend of both humorous
and serious music is decidedly western, with flavors of swing, bluegrass, country, blues and gospel. In addition to his music and twisted greeting card art, he is also a sculptor, illustrator, commission artist, husband and father. He loves life and, according to his mother, he is actually quite harmless. It is even rumored that he actually has friends too.
We are very excited to be hosting the second annual Gala for Clearwater College of Biblical Studies (formerly Living Faith Bible College) on February 11, 2017. We want to invite you to this quality event being held in Red Deer at Living Stones Church at 5:00 pm on Saturday, February 11. At this Gala you will enjoy great food, gut-busting comedy, and world class music with singer, songwriter, humorist, and award winning cartoonist Ben Crane.
In addition to encouraging you with a fun-filled evening, we would love to share some of our stories and dreams with you. The evening will also feature some of our students and an envisioning presentation on Clearwater College as well as the other ministries of Living Faith Evangelistic Association. Exciting things continue to happen at Clearwater College and ahead of us are new opportunities to more effectively fulfill our vision for evangelizing, discipling, equipping, and deploying servant leaders to impact our world for Christ.
In conjunction with this event, we will also be holding a silent auction and a variety of quality items will be available for your consideration. Those placing the winning bids will not only receive their items, but any amount given over the market value of the items is eligible for a charitable tax receipt at the end of the year.
It would mean a great deal to us and to the future of this ministry if you would attend this upcoming event. As with last year, we have set the price for tickets at $45 per person, though $20 of this amount is eligible for a charitable receipt. Book at table of eight for $330 and save $30. There will also be opportunity for you to give or pledge your support to the ongoing ministry of Clearwater College. To register for this event, simply click the registration button at the right.
If you are unable to attend, please consider the opportunity below.
If you are unable to attend the Gala, another way you may wish to help is through becoming a sponsor. We are raising sponsorship to assist with covering the “beyond meal” expenses for hosting such an event. Some of these costs include promotional materials, decorations, appetizers, tickets for students and staff who will be assisting with the program and preparations, and more. By raising sponsorship money in advance we can ensure that our costs are covered and we can maximize the donation value of this event. All proceeds will go toward Clearwater College’s training of students and various ministry programs.
There are several levels to sponsorship: Gold - $500, Silver - $250, Bronze - $100, and Friends - less than $100. Your generous sponsorship will be listed in the event program and acknowledged during the evening. At the end of the year you will receive a charitable receipt for the value of your contribution.
