2020 Events


In response to the COVID crisis gripping our nation, our Fifth Annual Des Moines Light of Hope event was held online on Friday, July 24, 2020. While there are always technical challenges with doing an event like this for the first time online, we still fulfilled our goal to raise awareness and funds to help give Iowa's abused and neglected children a voice in the decisions that affect their lives - and hope for a safe, permanent and loving home.

Like our other events in this strange and challenging year of 2020, the Fourth Annual Quad Cities Light of Hope event was held online on Friday, August 14, 2020.

Virtual guests were moved and inspired by two amazing speakers: Bob Waterman – managing partner at law firm Lane & Waterman, and Doug Cropper – CEO of Genesis Health System. Former SNL star Gary Kroeger returned again as event emcee.

Thank you to all the guests who helped raise awareness and funding to support the volunteers who do such amazing work with these vulnerable children.
