An Evening of Transformation logo for Gala event

Our 23rd Annual Gala: An Evening of Transformation this past Friday was a wonderful evening celebrating the remarkable work of our mission. 

We are thrilled to announce, with your support, our event raised over a record-breaking $260,000!

During the event, we saw Ashely’s transformation at Helping Hand and how she transformed the room with the power of her voice. We saw other student and client appearances throughout the program, and reflected on all of our amazing staff that provide genuine care and education by bringing value to everyone served at Helping Hand. 

We are inspired by all those that participated, whether in-person or at home. Thank you for connecting with us and helping us celebrate our mission!
