Thank you for a heartwarming celebration
Thank you for making Hope for Children Now a heartwarming celebration of the children in our community schools! A gala just isn’t a celebration without the joy and love each and every one of you brings to the evening. We are grateful and hope that you enjoyed the evening. We certainly did!
You helped us shine a light on the hard work and tremendous progress the kids in our programs have made over the year. How could you feel anything but pride for “Team Al-Bara” and “Team Bridget” as they took the stage with their families, teachers, and tutors? Those young kids stole the show, and quite a few hearts!
You embraced keynote speaker L.K. Monroe’s passionate plea for “justice to prevail” in our schools and our community. Indeed, sustainable change is critical to the long-term success of children in our community schools.

You also supported Children Rising programs through your generous gifts. Thanks to you, we raised over $165,000, by far the most we have ever raised at Hope for Children Now. Hope for Children Now is always more than just a fundraiser. However, your gifts are crucial to fulfilling the vision that a caring community reaches every struggling child at a critical time in their life to nurture hope, the courage to dream, and the opportunity to thrive.
We are so incredibly grateful that you joined us to celebrate the children. We took loads of photos and hope you find a few in there that bring a smile to your face.
From the entire Children Rising family, thank you.
