Saturday, January 30, at 7 pm

An Evening to Dream Big, virtually, of course

Love and hope. We believe these are the two most powerful forces in the world.

Invested in a child, these forces can change the course of a life – even generations that follow.

They are what fuel dreams, and they are what will get us through these difficult times.

COVID-19 may tempt us as a community to dream smaller right now – but we cannot. This is not the time. Children have suffered disproportionately from the pandemic and its harm to vulnerable families.

Now is time to dream big.

Join us on January 30 as we hear from best-selling author Bob Goff – a beloved authority on love, hope, and dreaming big – and kids who have their own inspiring stories to tell.

Auctions and a raffle are part of our evening, so make plans to join us from your comfy spot at home!
