Glimmer of Hope 4th Annual Gala
We cannot believe that the gala came and went. We prepared for a full year and in 4 hours the event was done. What a great event! Everyone looked so amazing with their roaring 20's attire! The table decorations were amazing and the place itself so elegant.
Over 140 people attended this event and we were able to fundraise over $13k. In addition, 13 children were sponsored!
We are so thankful for all of your support and love for AOTK. We cannot do this without you.
We hope to see you next year.

ABOUT THE EVENT
Featuring an evening of inspiration, dinner & dessert, silent auction, live entertainment and awesome speakers! This will be a night to remember as we come together to celebrate our success in 2016 and raise money for greater things to come in 2017. Every penny raised will be used to support our projects which bless the children we serve around the world! Don't miss out on making a difference in the lives of children. This is also a great opportunity to get to know more about our ongoing programs and meet our team.
THIS YEARS THEME: The Roaring 20's
Our event is located at a beautiful historic venue called the 19th Century Club so we are excited to host a Roaring 20's themed gala. What does this mean? Ladies, break out your black dresses, flapper headbands and pearls. Men, we are making it simple for you! Black slacks, black shirt and red or white tie. Or you can go all out and get a zoot suit! It can't get any easier than that! To make it more interesting, there will be a prize for the best dressed!
