Every year at GRACEPOINT, we find that there are students who desperately need the help that our school can provide, but do not have the funds to attend. To address that need, our school holds an annual auction to raise scholarship funds for those students needing assistance. This year, the auction was held during our Giggles for GRACEPOINT event at the Marietta Country Club on Saturday, March 25. Approximately 200 supporters attended the event including current school families and friends, as well as business leaders from the Cobb community. Over $40,300 was raised to directly support a scholarship fund for existing and new students for the 2017-2018 school year.
This fun filled evening featured the comedic talents of Christian comedian, Kenn Kington, while offering heavy hors d'oeuvres, spirits, dancing, and an opportunity to bid on incredible auction items.
Kenn Kington has appeared on Comedy Central and is one of the most played comedians on XM radio. He has spoken and performed for hundreds of companies and organizations all over the country, including Marriott, NBA, PGA, Joe Gibbs Racing, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Lockheed Martin, CNN, and many more. Kenn inspires thousands monthly through his bestselling books and radio show/podcast.
