Inspired For Life: A Seaside Soiree

Inspiration always strikes when we’re fully rested: when our minds are clear, and our hearts are full, ready to pour into the next thing God’s calling us to do. We experience the real joy of the Lord in these times, who strengthens us to keep going!

And that’s why for our 5th annual fundraising event, we are taking you to the West Coast! We’re excited AND inspired to host a seaside soiree’ for our wonderful supporters in the golden state…California!

Our 2023 Inspired for Life: A Seaside Soiree’ is happening this coming April 21 at the beautiful Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas / Boutique Luxury Hotel!

We want you to come and leave more inspired and more invigorated by taking a weekend for yourself to relax and indulge while celebrating our impact from 2022 and learning firsthand what we have planned for 2023.

What to Expect

Enjoy barefoot luxury and all that the resort has to offer: beachfront/ocean views, a spa, fine dining, and a chance to take a breather.

On Friday, April 21st we’ll have a cliffside reception with light hors d’oeuvres. Those that purchase one of our retreat packages will have the pleasure of meeting our guest speakers.

The attire for the seaside soiree’ will be beach formal. (Think Tommy Bahama or a Hawaiian vacation!) We want you to be comfortable and relaxed.

On the following Saturday, there will be a vision-casting light breakfast for those who have purchased one of our retreat packages.
