|February 18, 2017 – Night Without A Tux Gala REGISTER|
Safe Harbour's ninth annual "Night Without A Tux" fundraising gala will take place on Saturday, February 18, 2017, at the Carlisle Country Club.
This year's guest speaker is Mike Yankoski, author of Under the Overpass: A Journey of Faith on the Streets of America. Yankoski is a writer, itinerant speaker, urban homesteader, and also an aspiring carpenter, musician, potter and sailor.
Several years ago, Yankoski took off a semester from college to do something a little uncanny: he was homeless. For five months, in six different American cities, Michael and his friend Sam intentionally ate from trash cans and homeless shelters, slept under bridges, and panhandled in order to survive. They chose to do this not only in order to better understand the plight of the American homeless, but also to observe how everyday Christians were interacting with this despised corner of American society. Michael's book Under the Overpass: A Journey of Faith on the Streets of America(Multnomah, 2010) captures this journey on the streets and relates the people, experiences and revelations that have forever changed his life.
"Night Without A Tux" raises funds to support Safe Harbour's mission of providing housing and supportive services for homeless and nearly homeless individuals and families to help them achieve independent living by increasing their basic life skills. The event also features dinner, music and dancing with Jazz Me, and a Silent Auction.
