Spring is a Time for H.O.P.E. Brunch

Successful Brunch News!


During our Annual Spring is a Time for H.O.P.E.  fundraiser, April 24th, 2021- over $20,000 was raised.  THANK YOU! 


We have even more exciting news --- YOU can still contribute to this amazing program!! We have received a very recent $6,000 matching challenge gift that we are hoping to meet. This would create a total of $12,000 additional dollars, allowing us to provide support, care, and education for 60 orphans!

This hybrid virtual event can be viewed below! Our time for celebration and joy included presenting an award to our Center Hero of the Year, Chin Keong Tan, musical performances by Kelly Triplett, and Center Executive Director Don Messer acting as event MC. 


After a brief greeting by the new Bishop of Kenya, Nicholas Mutwiri Nteere, three AIDS orphans shared their success stories of how they are now pursuing University studies thanks to the Center donors. Pastor Nathan Adams of Park Hill United Methodist Church, provided an inspirational keynote address. The event was dedicated in memory of Ann Fort, known as “Mama Kenya.”
