Video: Charlotte Rescue Mission
Charlotte Rescue Mission is a Christian non-profit organization that provides food, clothing, shelter and residential addiction-recovery services for men, women and children struggling with homelessness and addiction. Through its Rebound men’s program and Dove’s Nest program for women and their children, certified substance abuse counselors build a foundation for long-term sobriety in people’s lives and then return them as contributing members of society. While many community programs focus on “symptoms” of homeless, poverty and addiction, the Rescue Mission focuses on the root of the problem in order to change people from the inside out.
The Charlotte Bobcats are delighted to partner with the Rescue Mission during the Chicago Bulls game on Saturday, January 25 and help it highlight critical community initiatives impacting the Charlotte community. Be sure to visit the Bobcats Community Corner across from section 112 at Time Warner Cable® Arena this Saturday to learn more about the Charlotte Rescue Mission. Saturday will also be the last night for our silent auction featuring the following:
|Charlotte Bobcats Forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Autographed Jordan Brand Shoes||Basketball Autographed by the 2013-14 Charlotte Bobcats||Charlotte Bobcats Center Al Jefferson (aka Big Al) Autographed Authentic Jersey||Charlotte Bobcats Forward Cody Zeller Autographed Authentic Jersey|
In addition to our silent auction we will also have Courtside Raffle tickets for the chance to win Michael Jordan’s courtside seats to the Brooklyn Nets game on March 26, plus an autographed Michael Jordan basketball.
1 Ticket - $10
6 Tickets - $50
We look forward to seeing you at the Community Corner!
