yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7 - Raising Hope (at home)

November 19, 2020

Please join Catholic Charities West Michigan for a special Raising Hope (at home) event. Each year, supporters of Catholic Charities West Michigan gather for our Raising Hope Dinner but due to COVID-19, we are unable to gather safely in person this year. However, we are committed to sharing our agency’s success stories and celebrate the work that we do in our communities each day. This year, we are asking the community to join us for our first Raising Hope (at home) virtual event.

The event will be held Thursday, November 19 at 7 PM in the comfort of your own home. This year, we are welcoming Mark Weber, Catholic Central and Notre Dame alumni, and producer of the award winning documentary Poverty Inc. Mark will speak about how his faith and experience led him to work on Poverty Inc., and how we as a community can unite to help our brothers and sisters rise out of poverty and into prosperity. During the event, we will also be hearing from Bishop Walkowiak and our clients who have been personally affected from the support provided through our programs. And the program will end with a special virtual performance by the Catholic Central High School Choir.

Raising Hope raises funds to support the more than 30 social service programs provided by Catholic Charities and through these programs, CCWM provides help and creates hope for more than 32,000 individuals each year.

In lieu of joining us in person, we hope that you will still attend Raising Hope! If you are able, we ask that you make a donation for what you may have spent on the night of the event:

Hiring a Babysitter – $75
Event Ticket – $150
VIP Ticket – $250
