Underwrite Event Expenses Directly

Will you consider underwriting a portion of this year’s 25th-anniversary celebration?

There are a number of significant costs involved with this event and you can help ensure the donations received at the dinner can be dedicated to reaching the next 500 children versus event expenses.

We intend to bring several children and staff from Esperanza Viva to be part of the festivities. Things like travel, visa and immigration processing, to covering the rental of the facilities, food and display materials, all are part of presenting Living Hope International in the most positive light, while being good stewards of financial resources.

Our annual dinner events are an opportunity to reconnect with old friends as well as introduce new people to Living Hope International in the context of stories from the past, vision for the future, and a celebration of what God is doing in the lives of the children of LHI.

In recent years, Jerry and Susy McNally were able to bring young people, raised under their care, to the dinners in the United States. These young people stepped out of their comfort zones to share their testimonies, give their appreciation, and in some cases, share a traditional Mexican dance with those gathered.
