The event was from 5:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. It was free for everyone who wished to attend it. This inspiring event also featured musical performances by Michael W. Smith, a Grammy-winning artist, Dennis Agjanian, an award-winning guitarist, among other artists.

While the event was ongoing, the Saipan Southern High School JROTC Manta Ray Battalion cadets gave their assistance. The cadets were at American Memorial Park by 4 p.m. doing parking detail along with security and other schools. They had done traffic control detail before the event started to avoid any traffic problems and kept all cars organized. With half of the JROTC cadets working on road guard, the rest were kindly escorting people to their seats to ensure no one was crowding up on any of the seating areas.

In conclusion, the event went on smoothly and successfully.
