Events . . .
Shown below are several fundraising events that benefit Safe Harbor.
33-Day Summer Challenge - 2022
To celebrate 33 years of service in our community, we are pleased to announce our 2022 Summer Challenge. This will take place for 33 days between June 29 and July 31, and it is our goal to raise $133,000. Last year, we held a similar event and raised over $100,000 (see the details under “Shine the Light” below.)
This year’s event is called, “More Than Conquerors” and we are encouraging our ministry partners to join us as we stand in strength to protect the precious. We will once again be seeking individuals and teams to raise funds for us in a variety of ways. Last year we were amazed at the creativity of our participants.
You can be part of our team to raise funds so we can continue to protect the precious lives of our community – the unborn and their moms and dads! Every life is valuable! Please pray about your involvement; and pray for us as we launch the campaign. If you are ready to join us, please phone Bobbi Grubb at 850-439-2511 or e-mail [email protected]
Baby Bottle Boomerang
The annual BBB promotion is a fun way for all members of the family to get involved and provide much-needed funding for Safe Harbor. Liaisons from local churches provide empty baby bottles to their church members. Families fill the bottles with loose change, dollars, and even checks. The bottles are then returned to the church liaisons who take them to the bank and deposit the money. This is an amazing fund-raiser resulting in around $50,000 per year. If your church has never participated, perhaps you might volunteer to be the liaison. Please discuss it with your pastor and let us know if you’d like to get involved.
It's not too late to join our 2022 campaign as this will be ongoing throughout the entire year. Many churches have concluded the event to coincide with Sanctity of Life Month in January. However, other churches and organizations are beginning in May to coincide with Mother's Day. Some even hold their events during VBS in the summer. In 2022 for the first time we are adding an option to collect funds online through credit card donations.
Micah 6:8 Run/Walk for Life
This annual event is organized by Micah 6:8, a group of men in Pensacola, who live by the principle to do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly before God. Safe Harbor is blessed with the proceeds from this event.
The 2022 event was held January 22, 2022. Thanks to all of the sponsors and participants. Details for the 2023 event will be posted when they become available.
32-Day Summer Challenge - 2021
To celebrate 32 years of service in our community, we held a 32-day summer challenge called "Shine the Light." This event officially ran from June 28 through July 29, 2021, but donations continued to come in for several months. In the end, we raised over $100,000!
Teams and individuals in our community raised funds for Safe Harbor in a variety of creative ways. Some held events including a "Trash to Cash" yard sale, an afternoon of bowling, an art auction, a car wash, and many others. Two teams combined their efforts and held a BBQ followed by a Bluegrass concert. A few of our fundraising teams were comprised of teens! Many lives were impacted and we continue to hear encouraging stories.
We are working on plans for another similar event in the summer of 2022. Watch for upcoming details!
Annual Fundraising Banquet
Prior to the pandemic, we held a fundraising dinner each spring. During this event, we gathered with around 500 people and shared a wonderful evening of excellent food, informative ministry highlights, encouraging client testimonies, and an inspiring speaker.
We were scheduled to host this event in April, 2020, but we had to reschedule due to Covid-19. This event was an online event that premiered November 19, 2020. We have had so many positive and encouraging comments. If you missed it, please use the link below to view it. You will be blessed!
