Hands 4 Hope Penthouse Gala

This wonderful evening supported Hands 4 Hope and our youth enrichment programs. Thank you deeply to Beverly & Carlos Yepes and Maureen & Butch Kolar for hosting such a special night.

If you missed this incredible event, we had a truly spectacular evening. If you attended, thank you so much for your support and generosity! Please view our entire album of photos that beautifully capture the evening here. And a very special thank you to Amy Lamb of NativeHouse Photography for her amazing images.

The Birthday Challenge

Every year, Hands 4 Hope supporters take part in a birthday challenge to raise funds and awareness for education. This is a creative event that can include anything from physical feats to mental challenges to absolutely silly activities. Here is a fun article about Executive Director, Harris Ambush, and one of his Birthday Challenges from years ago.

We challenge you to create your own Birthday Challenge to help with education and help Hands 4 Hope heal the world!
