We would like to personally invite you to the

6th Annual Night of Dreams Charity Gala

When: Saturday, October 20th, 2018 7-11 PM
at The Waterview Pavilion 800 River Road (Rt 35) Belmar, NJ

No Children Under 12

The purpose of this event is to raise funds to support the full-time operational programs at the Dream Center. Included in these programs is our “Single Moms” Family Restoration Home for mothers who are struggling with life-controlling issues, Men’s Recovery Transition Home, the only weekly Mobile Food Truck in Monmouth County and our Baby Supply Pantry supplying free diapers to those who qualify for WIC. In all serving over 5,000 individuals per month in the Jersey Shore.

This year the Jersey Shore Dream Center has a very special guest, Darryl Strawberry, former Major League Baseball player. Though Darryl was extremely successful in his career, his personal life was plagued with addictions, abuse, divorces, cancer, jail-time and other issues. Darryl finally found true redemption and restoration in Jesus Christ.

“I was once very lost and tormented, but now I am found and free in Christ Jesus. I want everyone to experience the saving and transforming power of Jesus Christ.”
– Darryl Strawberry

Today, Darryl’s purpose and passion is serving the Lord Jesus Christ by speaking a message of hope and helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel. Darryl travels the country speaking and bringing a message of hope and restoration in Christ.

Darryl Strawberry is described as a legend by many who have been dazzled by the dynamics of his game, the power he possessed at the plate and the story of redemption that continues to bring hope to so many lives. He has earned the legendary nicknames and phrases of one of the most feared homerun hitters in the game of baseball, Straw’s Sweet Swing, Strawberry’s Field Forever and The Legendary Straw Man!
