You are invited to the Gems Uncovered “Love to Life” Gala Dinner on October 29th, 2016!
The evening will showcase what Gems Uncovered is doing to provide support and healing to victims of human trafficking. Not only will you experience hope through stories shared by some of the women who have graduated from our Diversion Program, but you will understand what it means to continue to bring awareness and financial support to fight this horrible crime against humanity.
Gems Uncovered has pioneered many frontiers over the last five years, starting in 2011 with the mission to bring hope to the women prostituting on the streets of Long Beach. In 2012 we were blessed to open a Drop In Center – the only one in Long Beach – to welcome girls to a safe place where they are listened too, loved on, and offered help through available services. Today, we have a successful Diversion Program called “Free 2 B Me” as well as Street Outreach Teams in Long Beach and Los Angeles.
Tickets are at a cost of $75 each. This includes a delicious meal, dessert, fair trade coffee, access to a silent auction, and a night of inspiring hope.
Place: 7th Street Church | 668 N. Obispo Ave., Long Beach, CA 90814
Time: 6PM- 9PM

Event Name: Women of Vision Orange County Faces of Change Dinner
Date: May 4, 2014
Location: The Island Hotel, Newport Beach
Cost: $160 pp
Contact for Reservations: Marie Forde at email@example.com
Women of Vision Orange County is pleased to announce this year’s Faces of Change Dinner featuring local San Clemente author Kim Yim and her co author Shayne Moore. The dinner and fundraiser will be held on Sunday, May 4th at the Island Hotel Newport Beach. Doors will open at 4 pm for a spectacular silent auction with dinner and speakers to follow.
“We are thrilled to have both authors of the book, Refuse to Do Nothing as our keynote speakers,” said Melissa Johnson, Orange County co-chair. “These young, dynamic women have a passion for abolishing modern day slavery.”
In Refuse to Do Nothing, “abolitionist Mamas” Shayne Moore http://www.shaynemore.com and Kimberly Yim firstname.lastname@example.org share their stories of coming to terms with the power available to them in their normal, everyday lives to illuminate the shadows where those who traffic in people hide. The women compel corporations to fight slavery in how their products are made, they motivate politicians to fight for human dignity and they mobilize friends and strangers to fight slavery here in California, throughout the nation and throughout the world.
Women of Vision (WOV), a voluntary ministry of World Vision, is committed to empowering impoverished women and children around the world including projects in Orange County. A number of our local projects include: Shalimar Learning Center an after school tutoring and activities program for at-risk children from elementary to high school; and A New Way of Life, provides shelter and help to rehabilitate women who have been released from prison, offering them a home and opportunities for training and self-sufficiency for their new lives; as well as international projects in Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Jerusalem/West Bank, Mexico, Bolivia.
Orange County WOV was established almost 25 years ago and set the stage for the growth of today’s 40 chapters located around the country.
Our dinner event, including silent auction, is our primary fundraising event of the year. Reservations can be made by contacting Marie Forde at email@example.com . At $160 per person reservations are limited.
