Gateway to Hope Banquet Update

By Vernon Hills

A big thank you to everyone who joined us at our 30th Annual Gateway to Hope Banquet! What a blessing it was to come together with others who share our passion for rebuilding the lives of women and children shattered by homelessness, addiction, and abuse. 275 people joined us on September 18th at the Blackhawk Auto Museum — praise God!

We raised support to provide refuge for women and children, restore their hope and dignity, and rebuild their lives on the gospel of Jesus. Lives will be changed forever!

If you would like to see some pictures from last night, check out our Flickr page. We hope you enjoy them!

We would also like to thank our amazing sponsors who helped the night be so successful.
