Due to the current unprecedented times, this year we are planning a virtual fundraising event for May 4, 2021. This year's theme is May the Fourth be with Urban Light Ministries. It is a play on the event date and the second highest grossing film franchise of all time, Star Wars®. "Our goal is the raise $30,000 for the further develop-ment of online programming for The Sonshine Clubs and our Fatherhood Ministry." To reach this goal, we are asking for sponsorships from local businesses and individuals such as yourself.
Urban Light's mission is to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to our Heavenly Father. Social distancing during the pandemic has meant that we have not been able to minister in-person. But as we know, God is good ... and He is ahead of us and right on time! So, we've been using this "in-person pause" to work hard on programming like the POPS 101 on line fatherhood course In English and Spanish, a virtual Sonshine Club for kids and parents, and other impactful projects.
As you might imagine, video production is expensive (and we're not George Lucas). Therefore, we are trusting God to supply our every need every step of our way down this new and exciting path. By lending your support to this virtual May the Fourth event, you will be helping to strengthen families and enrich the lives of chil-dren in our community and beyond, as we have been endeavoring to do for nearly 3 decades.
There are several levels of sponsorship to choose from (see below). We are grateful for the Derr Road Kroger store and Modern Woodman of America for being early Baby Yoda sponsors. Please join them! As a May the Fourth sponsor, your company's name will be on materials and announced during the event. All levels of sponsorship are im-portant and appreciated.
