What you missed: recap of Mukti 2015 February 18 2015, 0 Comments

This past Saturday, we held our 4th annual Mukti Celebration Fundraiser. With nearly 300 attendees, we’d have to say this year’s Mukti was the most successful yet. Couldn’t make it out? Here’s what you missed:

The night began with opening sentiments from Carl Smith and Paige Kelton, followed by celebrity poetry readings from Delores Barr Weaver, Melissa Ross, Alan Verlander, and Sean Yost.

 

Accompanied with music from the Crescendo Amelia Big Band, the celebration continued with a “Passport to the World” dining experience catered by Conscious Eats, and delicious baked goods supplied by Motion Sweets, Kreasions, GuanaBana and Simply Southern Eatery. 

 After a thought-provoking speech given by our very own Kristin Keen, we were blown away by the story of a current Rethreaded employee, who’s a survivor of sex trafficking. Stories such as hers remind us why our mission is so important: we’re not only transforming lives, we’re giving people the hope and freedom they need to transform their own.
