FIRM will be hosting their annual fundraiser on November 7 (from 6-9pm) at Fresno First Baptist Church. This year, the Rev. Dr. Sharon Stanley will be our keynote speaker and will be reflecting on the last 20 years of FIRM’s work. The theme of the event is “20/20 Vision: Celebrate The Past, Look To The Future” and following Rev. Dr. Stanley’s keynote address, new Executive Director Zachary Darrah will share his vision for the next 20 years of FIRM ministry. The next 20 years of FIRM ministry will need the support of our old friends and the support of new friends as well. We really hope that friends of FIRM will fill Fresno First Baptist to capacity to show that we all want to see many more decades of FIRM work in the community.
The event will feature quality cultural entertainment from the Hmong, Lao and Slavic cultures as well as a delicious culturally themed meal. You will not want to miss the Lao and acrobatic Hmong dance teams, the Hmong flute players, the Slavic choir and much more! The event will also feature a slideshow looking back over the last 20 years of ministry that FIRM has done with the refugee populations in Fresno.
