Samaritan’s Feet International is a 501(c)(3) humanitarian aid organization founded in 2003 by Nigerian born Manny Ohonme and his wife Tracie for the purpose of sharing hope with the under-served and hurting people of the world by washing their feet, giving them a new pair of shoes, and empowering them to believe that their dreams can come true.
The people of Samaritan’s Feet believe that shoes are so much more than status symbols and fashion accessories. A new pair of shoes can be a symbol of hope and the source of life to a person in need. Samaritan’s Feet shoe distributions are designed to both meet physical needs and inspire young people to believe in the value of life and service. These distributions are the outpouring of the Samaritan’s Feet dedication to changing hearts and lives forever.
The 4th Annual 2015 Samaritan's Feet International Barefoot Gala is an evening to kick off your shoes, dance and enjoy live music from the Ken Knox & Company Band for a second year in a row, participate in silent auctions, enjoy good food, mingle with friends, and make a lasting difference in the life of a child.
This year our theme is surrounding "STORIES". We are wanting to share with our community and the world why it is we do what we do. We want to share the HOPE that is inspired through every event that we hold, shoe distribution, mission trip, or even service day at our warehouse with all of you! We hope that you will join us at:
Le Meridien/Sheraton Hotel, 555 S. McDowell Street, Charlotte, NC
6:00pm - Doors open and silent auction begins
7:00pm - Dinner and program begin
This year we will be honoring three Women of Influence that have committed to impacting an international and domestic community. These nominated Women of Influence will share with you their country of choice and we'll see how they are an inspiration to those around them.
Your support through this event will provide new shoes and hope to future world-changers both here and in countries around the world.
Bare Feet Requested (Shoe check-in will be available)
We look forward to kicking off our shoes and inspiring more people to spread HOPE throughout the world!
