Our 2nd annual Festival of Hope went down on July 9th, 2022. Beautiful weather and great vibes were the theme of the day. There were incredible performances throughout the day by Rachel Schrock, St. John the Evangelist’s Ballet Folklorico Guadalupano, The Lost Luggage, Los Doble RR, and The Dean’s List. Great food and beverage options were provided by Saca Los Tacos, Tropicana Ice Cream Shop, Diana’s Dulces, and Goshen Brewing Company.

Families enjoyed playing cornhole, playing in the bounce house, getting their face painted, playing disc golf, making giant bubbles, getting a massage, and visiting with the nonprofit partners that were set up as part of the event. Thanks to our nonprofit partners for attending – Northern Indiana Hispanic Health Coalition, National Immigrant Justice Center, Oaklawn, Goshen Public Library, Church Community Services, CAPS, La Casa de Amistad, and research group Seguimos Avanzando.

Our Day of Giving was also a success, as we raised $27,092.43 toward our $24k in 24 hours challenge! This would not have been possible without the support of our terrific sponsors and the support of the community.

Thanks to Miller Poultry, Oaklawn, Grand Design RV, Nuway Construction, ATC, Goshen Brewing Company, Interra, and the Elkhart County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
