Invest in Crossroads Transition

Special Events



August 24, 2019,  12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.


Crossroads Ministry’s Annual Fundraiser

It’s time to do something for Yourself!  So take an afternoon off and come join a group of fantastic women and a few good men on Saturday, August 24th 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Y-12 New Hope Center on Scarboro Road (just past the entrance to Y-12) in Oak Ridge.  All tables have been decorated by each hostess with beauty and inventiveness.  Prior to the tea there will also be a silent auction beginning at 12:00 p.m.  Certificates for hair, food, herb classes and surprises plus unusual items like antique cups filled with tea and scones, planters, and much more.

There is no cost to the tea; however, there will be a chance at the end of the program to make a donation to this very worthy cause.  We would love to have you join us for this afternoon of food, fun, and fellowship.

To say that this year’s ‘Tea for Two’ was a success is an understatement. We surpassed the goal we had set to be able to finish the outside trim work on the front building and have the permanent roofing installed. We now have funds left over for an unexpected expense and we know there will be lots of those. To date we have received $21,213.00 in addition to the $10,000.00 match. In addition to that goal we have offered another way people can help us, by adopting an apartment. One family has already adopted the office for $5,000.00 with $1,000.00 towards that room already received. Below is a sample of the card we gave each attendee so those who weren’t able to attend could see the opportunity we are offering!

                             Dreams Realized

Since finding out we are able to complete the front apartment building we have been pricing each and every article needed to complete the work. It came out that the estimates for the three apartments will be close to $10,000.00 each from the roof to the floor and all in between. The two end single units will be close to $5,000.00 each. If you aren’t able to commit to a complete apartment consider sharing with friends to come up with the total amount. Have fun with this and adopt an apartment to show your children what helping others can accomplish. This is an example of how the plaque would look!

                   For your generosity and love and with

                     our great appreciation and thanks to

               The Jones Family

                for adopting this apartment

The need for Crossroads Center of Hope is overwhelming with families being turned away every day because there is no place for them to stay and so with what was accomplished at this year’s Tea for Two we will be able to provide housing for three mothers and up to six children when the front building is renovated sooner rather than later.
