2018 Gala’s Were A Success

Thank you to all of our friends and supporters of Light of Hope for all of your support over the last year! We are incredibly blessed to have all of you in our lives, and appreciate each one of you, whether you are volunteering, offering financial support or sending prayers for the girls of Light of Hope!

The 2018 Shine a Light of Hope Gala was held on Saturday, April 21 and was a huge success! We raised nearly $150K for the girls of Light of Hope and were blessed with a two special guests that flew in the day of the event to help us raise more funds (thank you Jared Allen and Marc Bulger)!

This first annual gala was held on Friday, April 27th at Concorde Banquets in Kildeer, IL and came about through the love and shepherding of Jeff and Diane Balagna! We are thrilled to share that nearly 120 people were in attendance and $63,000 was raised, and more importantly wonderful connections were made for years to come. We can’t wait for next year!
