Tonight's focus is children growing up in poverty and achieving success. The organization also launched its Father Initiative, trying to help young dads make an impact in their children's lives.
"The bottom line is if you grew up with a single mother," said Executive Director and CEO Gina Gibson, "you didn't have a good example or any example at all. So, how can we expect you to know how to be a dad? And so, we want to equip and engage and just bring those parents up to do something for their children to make an impact."
Tonight's funding goes to the Christian Life Center's nine programs and holiday outreach programs.
