Children Rising is proud to invite you to the 2022 Hope for Children Now Gala.

We are so excited to host an in-person event at Children’s Fairyland this year! This iconic Oakland landmark on the edge of downtown Lake Merritt has welcomed children and families for over 70 years. It will be so good to see everyone in the extended Children Rising family. 

Hope for Children Now is more than just a fundraiser. It is our opportunity to shine a light on the amazing progress our kids have made. This year, we are honored to announce Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf will deliver our keynote address.This magical night will also consist of a raffle, an auction, special guest speakers, and entertainment from the amazing kids of the Prescott Circus Theatre!

Savor delicious dinner bites from The Table catering, no-host bar, and dessert!

You will be inspired by the wonderful children and youth overcoming the many challenges they face due to poverty, violence, racial injustice, and educational inequity. Celebrate their successes and the loving support they receive from caring tutors and mentors.

Please join us to celebrate children and youth rising to their God-given potential.
