Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation, proudly sponsors the “Machine Gun Preacher,” Rev. Sam Childers and Angels of East Africa! Rev. Childers’ real-life events inspired the motion picture, Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler (300, The Ugly Truth, Law Abiding Citizen), Michelle Monaghan (Mission Impossible III, Mr. & Mrs. Smith) and Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Pearl Harbor). Sam Childers is a Pennsylvania preacher who has spent the last 14 years of his life fighting to rescue suffering children from civil wars in Northern Uganda and Sudan. Childers, a former biker and drug dealer, was an excessively violent man until he found God at the age of 30. In the years since, Childers has waged war against indescribable evil and, despite overwhelming odds, has lived to tell the tale.
Our auction/raffle net proceeds benefits Angels of East Africa.
In 1998, Rev. Childers founded the Angels of East Africa (AOEA). AOEA has rescued over a thousand orphaned children from starvation, disease and enslavement by the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army. Today these children live in the Children’s Village, a secure compound and oasis of calm in the Southern Sudanese village of Nimule. Behind these protective walls the next generation of Sudanese leaders are housed, clothed, fed and educated, safe from the echoes of war that still traumatize the nation of Sudan. Rising Phoenix Charitable Foundation is privileged to stand with Rev. Childers and AOEA in support of this worthy cause.
This is a cocktail event, starting at 7:00 p.m. PDT. Guests will enjoy a deluxe buffet with carving station, followed by entertainment, raffles and a live auction of unique items.
$100 per plate or $900 for a table of ten.
