On August 14, 2019, the Atlantic City Rescue Mission (ACRM) is holding its annual Summer Gala Fundraiser. The event is intended to benefit the organization’s ongoing campaign to build comprehensive services to help those in need. The Summer Gala Fundraiser will be held from 6:00–10:00 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom at The Atlantic City Sheraton Convention Center Hotel, located at 2 Convention Blvd. Atlantic City, N.J. 08401. Tickets for the event are $125 for individual guests and $1,100 for full tables, and they can be reserved at acrescuemission.org. Highlighting the evening will be two very special guests: keynote speaker, Darryl Strawberry, Major League Baseball legend and a bestselling author and master of ceremonies, Dave Sholler, Vice President of Communications for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Darryl Strawberry is described as a legend by many who have been dazzled by the dynamics of his game, the power he possessed at the plate and the story of redemption that continues to bring hope to so many lives. He has earned the legendary nicknames and phrases of one of the most feared homerun hitters in the game of baseball, Straw’s Sweet Swing, Strawberry’s Field Forever and The Legendary Straw Man!
Today, Darryl’s purpose and passion is serving The Lord Jesus Christ by speaking a message of hope and helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel. “I was once very lost and tormented but now I am found and free in Christ Jesus. I want everyone to experience the saving and transforming power of Jesus Christ.” ~Darryl Strawberry
Dave Sholler, an Egg Harbor Township High School and Stockton University graduate, has an extensive resume that includes formerly serving as Vice President of Public Relations and Athlete Marketing for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He brought his talents to his hometown team, the 76ers, in November 2016, joining the organization as Vice President of Communications.
A three course Chef Crafted dinner will be served. The evening will include a classic auction with an exciting selection of gifts and getaway packages, a raffle and a professional photographer onsite. Valet or self-parking will be available on premises.
