On a beautiful early summer evening in Scottsdale, Arizona, the DNA Support Center hosted its first-ever fundraising dinner. Hein VanWyk, Southern Africa Coordinator for Samaritan Strategy Africa gave the keynote address, along with Scott Allen, DNA Support Center President.
Over 50 people attended the event, hosted by Danny and Jodi Nelson, friends of the Disciple Nations Alliance. DNA board member Dwight Vogt served as Master of Ceremonies, and new DNA Support Center team member Gary Brumbelow shared his testimony of how the DNA has impacted him. Former DNA support center staff member Jeffrey Houser and his wife Christine served as table hosts.
The sponsors for the evening were Greg and Jean Vestri. Greg was formerly president of Food for the Hungry. He and Jean graciously provided a donation that covered all of the expenses for the evening. By God’s grace, over $18,000 was raised to support the work of the DNA.
