The annual YOKE Banquet is our largest fundraising event of the year, and its success is vital to the ongoing ministry of YOKE. To ensure the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff, we’ve decided to make this year’s event completely virtual. The event, sponsored by Pilot Company, will be held Wednesday, October 14th at 11:30 am. In addition to featuring a live program, our virtual platform will enable us to recognize sponsors throughout the event. A live chat feature will encourage guest interaction and donations can be made quickly online without leaving the platform.

The YOKE virtual luncheon will be a great opportunity for folks to learn more about our mission and how they can be involved. The event will provide a glimpse of the YOKE culture and the impact that the ministry has on kids, schools, churches, and communities. It’s a chance for us to celebrate all that God has done over the past 12 months and provides the opportunity for us to look ahead and anticipate what He is going to do over the coming year. Finally, it’s a chance to invest!

There are several ways that you can be involved in this year’s event. Be our guest or sign up to host your own virtual table. There is no charge to host a table. Hosts simply commit to “filling” a virtual table with 10 friends who would be interested in knowing about YOKE and might have the capacity to invest in the mission. Our online registration system will make it easy to invite and register your guests. There are opportunities for your business, church, or civic organization to help sponsor the event as well.

All proceeds from the banquet benefit the ongoing work of YOKE in Knox, Blount, Anderson, Jefferson, Loudon, and Grainger Counties. For more information about how you can be involved, contact us at 865-522-6907 or
