Seeds of Hope 2020: Fundraiser and Virtual Celebration

Are you ready to root our community in justice and move it towards hope? 

We are so excited to host our first-ever Seeds of Hope online! On June 20th, 2020, we are hosting a day of giving to raise $100,000 providing vital funding to our legal aid, immigrant services, and case management programs. We will start off our video broadcast at 5pm with a Community Mass, followed by a live-streamed event from Third Degree Art Factory until 9pm. This event is going to have everything: live music, raffle drawings, messages from our amazing staff, this year’s Instrument of Peace award, even trivia! We hope you’ll join us to make this first-ever event a success for St. Francis and our clients.

Have Questions? We have answers!

Are you having an in-person event, like in previous years?

We have transitioned our yearly Seeds of Hope in-person gala to a completely online platform. We still wanted to be able to celebrate with our community and our supporters, and invite you to learn more about our mission and vision (and have a lot of fun!) by tuning in online to our virtual event!

Do I have to watch the live Saturday evening event to donate?

No! If you are busy the evening of the online you can make a pledge before the event or anytime the day of June 20th to help us reach our goal!

Do I have to buy a ticket to watch live?

Nope. We will provide a link to the live event, which you can access from any device.
