OUR RAISE HOPE GALA 2020 WAS a great success

This past year has been shifting and changing as we all navigate life in the middle of a pandemic. Having the Raise Hope Gala 2020 virtually was a difficult but necessary decision. There was much to learn, but we were up for the challenge. We are pleased to have had a well-attended Gala, exceeding all previous years. One great benefit in having a virtual Gala was that people were able to come from all over the US and other parts of the world. This year we surpassed our goal of $50,000.00. These funds not only support families in healing and growth, but also provide pre development funds to build new housing in the tight housing market.

If you were unable to come to this year’s Gala, we hope you enjoy the videos below.Thank you again to everyone that helped with preparations, created or bid on a silent auction item, attended the gala, donated, or served in any way. We honestly could not have done this without you.
We hope you enjoy all of the videos you may have missed
