On March 19, 2018 150 people gathered at the Vineyards Naples for our first annual Circle of Hope Dinner. It was a huge success! We want to thank everyone who attended and donated to our Fund a Need categories. Our event raised $208,205, which will help sustain funding for our orphanage, medical clinic, church, deaf school, computer lab, education resources, vocational facility and more.

Those in attendance were treated to a cocktail reception followed by a wonderful dinner provided by Vineyards Country Club.  A special thank you to our Keynote speaker Dr. Bob Petterson, Auctioneer Scott Robinson, DJ  Gil Blake and our MC Scott J. Vail.

Auctioneer Scott Robinson conducted the Fund a Need So Kids Can Succeed portion. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to program advancement in four specific areas: Education, Spiritual Guidance, Vocational Training and Sponsor a Child.

Keynote speaker Dr. Bob Petterson shared his story as a testament that when you invest in children, they can thrive and break the pattern of poverty and despair.

Everyone was entered into a drawing for some wonderful door prizes.

Congratulations to the winners:
