Trusted Mentors Gala 2017

Our 2017 Gala treated nearly 150 guests to a neon-colored, polka-dotted, and leather-lovin good time. Emcee and RTV6 news investigator Rafael Sanchez lead our Miami Vice Back to the 80s Party with his bright beach suit while Goodwill’s Shontavia Atkinson’s impressive ‘do won the big-hair contest.

Most importantly, Trusted Mentors’ mentor and ex-offender Reggie described how Trusted Mentors allows him to inspire his mentee Domini to live in a more constructive and faith-oriented way. Overall, our generous and thoughtful guests helped Trusted Mentors raise $33,000, ensuring Trusted Mentors continues to provide trained, volunteer mentors to people coming out of prison, at risk of homelessness, and aging out of the foster care system. With this selfless support, Trusted Mentors’ success rates like 90% of mentees in the re-entry track do not re-offend, are made possible.

We hope to see everyone at 2018’s Hawaiian Luau night!

Trusted Mentors night at the Indians!

Play ball! Summer nights at Victory Field are always a treat. Especially when we get to acknowledge the hard work of our mentors and mentees. Our August 22nd Indians game Recognition Night allowed almost 60 mentors and mentees, staff, and board members to mingle and celebrate accomplishments. Also, we were honored to have special guests interested in getting involved with Trusted Mentors join our event. Everyone enjoyed the pizza and had fun cheering for the Tribe!

Congratulations to our mentor and mentees and we can’t wait to recognize more milestones at our next Recognition Event in November.
