Dr. Andrea Cook, President of Warner Pacific College, invites you to attend an afternoon of inspiration at the President's Tea & Scholarship Auction, Saturday, April 13, 2013 at our Mt. Tabor Campus. Now in its fourth year, the President's Tea & Scholarship Auction is a unique opportunity for hundreds of community-minded women to gather and help meet the needs of underserved and first generation college students as they pursue their higher education goals.
Warner Pacific College has committed more than $2.5 million to students receiving tuition assistance for the coming academic year, which will benefit over 96% of the school's diverse and urban student body. Your generosity at the President's Tea & Scholarship Auction will play a vital role in helping local students achieve their dreams of earning a college degree, putting them on the road to a brighter future.
This year, we are thrilled to welcome pastor, author and Warner Pacific Board Member, Patrice Turner as our keynote speaker as she shares the message of "Courageous Authenticity." Joining Patrice as a special guest will be Warner Pacific Student Body President and Act Six Scholar, Adam Ristick.
The event will feature both a silent and verbal auction, as well as a charity 'paddle raise.' Selected auction highlights include:
All proceeds for the tea, auctions, and paddle raise will benefit Act Six scholarship students.
$35 per person
$245 per table (seating for seven)
Patrice Turner is a gifted speaker and author, as well as a Warner Pacific Board Member. Patrice is the Lead Pastor of The Grace Place (Church of God) in Harvey, Illinois, a faith community focused on sharing the love of God and the beauty of His grace. She founded the Joyful Living Network to help women learn to live truthfully, courageously, and joyfully. Having been raised in Islam, Pastor Turner offers a diverse life story, rich in prayer, grace, and inspiration.
We also welcome special guest and Act Six scholar, Adam Ristick. As a Portland Public Schools student, Adam struggled in his classes while navigating an unstable home life. Through Portland Central Young Life, he learned about the innovative Act Six Leadership & Scholarship Initiative at Warner Pacific College and his dreams of pursuing a better life soon became a reality. Now majoring in human development, Adam was elected student body president and mentors youth at Lane Middle School. He will be part of the first graduating cadre of Act Six scholars at the College in spring 2013.
