The 2019 Beneficiary is......
The FBC Gainesville Women's Ministry is proud to announce the beneficiary of our 2019 Emporium is Thumbs Up Mission! Thumbs Up is a local organization whose mission is to fortify families where a parent or child is fighting cancer. They focus on battling fear by infusing hope, inspiring laughter, and instilling an eternal perspective as they point families to Jesus. They do this through weekend retreats, held at resort properties such as Lake Lanier Islands & Great Wolf Lodge, that gather together large groups of cancer families to enjoy spending time with others who are on a cancer journey. The Thumbs Up organizers bring in comedy teams, musical entertainment, and inspirational speakers to provide an equal balance of structured group activities and free time for individual families. Their volunteer Family Hosts provide individualized attention to each cancer family, demonstrating that in the family of Christ, no one battles alone. Thumbs Up Mission supplies laughter when it is in short supply, infuses hope when circumstances look bleak, and provides families time together when cancer has stolen too much. We are honored to support them by donating 100% of the proceeds from this year's Emporium to their mission.
