our 2nd annual seeds of gala was a success!

This year we reached our goal and raised over $15,000 for cutting-edge educational technology in our programs. Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to an amazing night and for helping us empower lives through education!

Thank you Alex and Ani

for generously donating 15% of all eligible jewelry sales during this event

to support HOPES programming!

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend our SoHOPES Happy Hour

We had a great time having drinks and playing board games with our Associate Board on Friday, April 26. Shout out to SoHo House for having us and for helping us raise funds for our students!

Big thank you to Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken Chicago

for donating the proceeds from their soft opening at 401 N. State to our programs! Our staff, board members, and guests enjoyed some delicious fried chicken while supporting literacy programming for children experiencing homelessness in Chicago - what could be better? If you weren't able to make it this weekend, make sure to plan a trip to Gus's soon to support this great HOPES partner

80's Trivia Night

at Lagunitas had us feeling nostalgic. We were so stoked to have you all there. Big shout out to El Famous Burrito for generously providing delicious food for the evening, and to Lagunitas Chicago TapRoom & Beer Sanctuary for hosting. Can't wait to see you all again next year!

Thank you to everyone who came out to join us for the First Annual Seeds of HOPE Gala
