One week ago, the first-ever virtual Gala of Hope celebrated the resiliency of youth and adults in Chicago. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, more than $300,000 (and counting) was raised to help Chicago Lights continue to partner with the community to build brighter futures.

Watch the full Gala of Hope at Home, featuring stories from Chicago Lights participants Cadence and Ezekiel, Kaylen, Xavier, and Dave, with host and retired ABC7 news anchor Ron Magers and music provided by the Ken Arlen Evolution Orchestra.
Miss the event night of? There's still time to donate and make a difference!
The Chicago Lights Gala of Hope at Home benefits the life-changing youth development and social service programs of Chicago Lights and the community-support efforts of the Replogle Center
