Celebrating 25 years of transforming a formerly crime-ridden neighborhood in Northwest Pasadena with its prep school and Christian family center, Harambee Ministries will hold its annual silent auction and dinner on March 14.
This year’s fundraising benefit honors the many churches who have partnered with Harambee in serving the largely African American and Latino youth of the area for the past 25 years. Among the honorees will be All Saints Episcopal Church, First Church of the Nazarene, and Lake Avenue Church of Pasadena, as well as a diverse group of neighboring churches and churches from areas as far-reaching as Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Ohio. The generosity and support of many churches, along with private donors, has been integral to the success of the Harambee motto, literally “let’s get together and push.”
Hosted at Harambee School and Family Center, considered a local youth haven, guests will be treated to a lovely dinner, the chance to bid on wonderful items, a performance by the Harambee Children’s Choir, and inspiration speakers, including a former student. The event is free to attendees; however, donations will be gratefully accepted.
Providing neighborhood youth with educational and leadership opportunities, Harambee Ministries and Preparatory School is a nationally known non-profit organization, operating among the youth it serves. Harambee has helped build indigenous leadership in the community for 25 years. RSVP to this event by calling Rudy Carrasco at (626) 798-7431 or e-mail at Rodolpho@harambee.org.
