Young Life Sedona and the Verde Valley

Sedona AZ (October 6, 2014) – The following is a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor:

Young Life Sedona and Verde Valley’s annual fundraising banquet invited the attendees “behind the scenes” to “the feel good story of the year.” It did not disappoint!

Approximately two dozen young people (many now volunteer leaders, themselves) were on hand to convey the impact Young Life has had on them. We heard courageous stories of difficult lives transformed through the knowledge that they are infinitely precious and infinitely loved by God – and very well loved and supported by the family of Young Life. There may not have been a dry eye in the audience.

All of this took place at the Sedona Hilton on September 28, 2014. The evening was fully sponsored by generous gifts from individuals and from businesses and churches in Sedona and the Verde Valley. We thank them all and would like to list the businesses to encourage support for them as they support young people in our communities:

Arizona Northern Equipment
Bar-J Construction
Behmer Roofing
Brackin Benefits
Christ Center Wesleyan
Coldwell Banker
Colours Hair Design
Cottonwood Christian Assembly

  1. Appreciated this article.

  2. Support this group please

  3. My understanding is this is about a youth positive organization and AZ needs uplifting role models for today’s youth. It’s a positive for readers to go to Young Life website and give a donation no matter how small. It doesn’t matter what faith you are or if not because helping people is about compassion not religion. I appreciate your time reading my comment.

  4. My family supports businesses that supports kids. My niece loves YL. Thanks for supporting good kids.
