Event Description:


The Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC) invites the Hampton Roads community to its Black & White Un Gala on Friday, October 16 th at 7:00 pm. Their biggest annual fundraiser will be a LIVE Virtual Celebration this year!

“The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on our area’s homeless and the lack of available affordable housing,” conveyed JCOC’s executive director Todd Walker. “While the population was asked to self-quarantine, where were the homeless supposed to go? I’m looking forward to sharing with everyone watching the live Virtual Celebration about how JCOC is helping the homeless during this pandemic, other recent successes and future campus rebuild plans.”

The 60-minute program will feature an engaging conversation between 95.7 RnB’s Dale Murray and JCOC’s Todd Walker. Nationally known speaker Laura Contreras Rowe will share some of her journey about how growing up in a Texas border town shaped her into becoming a successful wife, mother, entrepreneur and author. Guests will also see the powerful story of one of JCOC’s permanent supportive housing clients leaving homelessness. Guests will also be able to support JCOC by bidding on Online Silent Auction items up to a week before October 16th. Go to JCOC.org for more information and to R.S.V.P online. Confirmed guests will receive an email with the evening’s Virtual Celebration link by October 7th . A donation of $50 per guest is suggested.

Proceeds from the Black & White Un Gala will benefit the area’s hungry and homeless participating in JCOC’s feeding and housing programs. This nonprofit 501(c)3 organization is based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. For thirty-four years, JCOC has been empowering thousands of homeless families, individuals, and veterans to recover from crises and return to being selfsupporting, productive, and independent members of our community. JCOC has continued to provide essential, around-the-clock human services to the area’s hungry and homeless throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
