Gift of Faith Gala

The Sixth Annual Cross Trails Ministry

 Gift of Faith Gala

The Gift of Faith Gala was held at The Courtyard by Marriott New Braunfels River Village on March 3, 2018.

We enjoyed an evening of great food, entertainment, live and silent auctions, music, dancing, and fellowship while raising over $27,000 for financial aid “Camperships” and keeping camp affordable for all!

We could not have done this without the amazing donors, sponsors and patrons!
Thank you!!
