Mercury One’s ‘The Nazarene Fund’ recently raised over $35M to rescue Afghan Christians and American citizens from Taliban
DALLAS — Mercury One, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on humanitarian aid, education and the preservation of United States history, founded in 2011 by media personality, entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author Glenn Beck, will celebrate 10 years of restoring the human spirit at “The Power of One – Renewing Kindness” 10-year anniversary event Saturday, Oct. 9, from 7 p.m.-11 p.m. (CT) at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas.
During the event, Glenn Beck will creatively tell the story of the American Journey — the good, the bad and the ugly. He will also recount Mercury One’s accomplishments over the past 10 years, which include rescuing Christians from ISIS in the Middle East and around the world through The Nazarene Fund, responding to natural disasters and preserving the truth of our nation’s founding.
“The goal of the night is to come together and honor the impact that our donors have made throughout the last ten years as we step into our next ten,” said Suzanne Grishman, Executive Director of Mercury One.
Award-winning contemporary Christian music artists Danny Gokey and Colton Dixon will headline the evening’s entertainment as part of their 2021 “Stand in Faith” tour. Award-winning husband and wife producers, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, will be presented with the Mercury One Bonhoeffer Angel Award. The award honors those who have the vision and courage to act when others won’t.
Special guests David and Tim Barton, who own one of the largest private collections of historical American artifacts in the nation, will speak about how God’s fingerprints are found throughout American history, from the time of the nation’s founding to the present day. The stage will be filled with incredible historical artifacts, from George Washington’s compass he used while he was a surveyor to artifacts from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, as well as Hollywood artifacts like Charleston Heston’s Chariot, “Ben Hur” boats and a liferaft from the movie “Titanic.”
The event will also include a raffle for a silver 2021 Lexus UX. The raffle is now open to attendees and will close the day of the event. Attendees must purchase a raffle ticket to enter.
“This event is to honor our incredible donors, without whom we could not accomplish our mission of restoring the human spirit,” said Glenn Beck, founder of Mercury One and The Nazarene Fund. “We’ve seen this in a very real way recently as we’ve watched supporters from all over the United States come together to raise over $35 million dollars to evacuate people from Afghanistan and to provide relief on the ground. I am eternally grateful to those who have truly blessed the world with their generosity over the past 10 years, and I eagerly look forward to seeing what we accomplish together in the next 10.”
Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available here. General Admission B tickets are $25 per person, General Admission A tickets are $50 per person and VIP tickets, which include VIP seating, a special VIP reception and one drink ticket, are $300 per person.
Suzanne Grishman, executive director of Mercury One, is available for comment or interview about the 10th anniversary celebration event and the life-changing impact of Mercury One campaigns.
Since its founding, Mercury One has worked to restore the human spirit by providing disaster relief, offering education programs and leading the charge to fight human trafficking and to protect persecuted religious minorities around the world. When Beck took the initiative to stand up and assist Christians and religious minorities being persecuted for their faith, he founded The Nazarene Fund. In response to the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan, donors to The Nazarene Fund recently raised nearly $35 million in three days to evacuate more than 5,000 Afghan Christians from the country.
