Justice for Our Neighbors Dinner and Fundraiser

The Annual Celebration and Dinner Fundraiser for Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON) will be hosted by Trinity on October 19, beginning at 5:00 p.m. A silent auction of donated items will precede dinner and program.
The dinner will be prepared, as last year, by Nivan Pinto of the Brazilian Ministry.
The program will describe how the Springfield JFON Clinic, under the oversight of Urban Potential, Inc., has helped almost 500 clients over the past six years towards gaining citizenship.
Also featured will be information about the ESL classes which are taught at Trinity in partnership with the Gray House.
T.J. Mills, Regional Attorney for Justice For Our Neighbors, will speak at the event, along with several other special guests.

Tickets for the dinner are $25 each or $200 for a table of 8.  You can purchase tickets by mailing a check to Urban Potential, 361 Sumner Ave., Springfield, MA  01108.  If you have questions you can email Diane Mackie.

We hope many will join us to learn more about this essential ministry.


Silent Auction

We will be offering a variety of items for purchase during a silent auction.  You will have a chance to bid on the items prior to the dinner.  Winners will be announced following the dinner.

Check back often since auction items will be added to this page as they are donated.  

We are collecting a broad array of new or like-new items such as sports equipment, paintings and hand-crafted items, antiques, gift certificates, vacation camps/condos for a weekend or a week, boating excursions … contact us to discuss your novel ideas.  All donations must be received by October 13.

Proceeds from the silent auction will help defray attorney expenses for the legal clinic, and will go toward helping to continue ESL classes at Trinity. 

There will be minimum bids set for many of the items we are offering.

The auction is the major fundraiser for this ministry so folks are invited to both contribute items for the auction and come and bid on items that are being offered.  

To donate an item or to ask questions about one or more of the listed items, please contact Urban Potential.
