Day of Hope
Thursday, October 3, 2019
A day of inspiration and opportunity. A Day of Hope.
A Day of Hope
Entering the eighth year, the Day of Hope Luncheon has developed into a powerful opportunity to both celebrate and inspire many of Cleveland’s hardest working middle school students who have been identified by their teachers as emerging leaders.
In the afternoon, more than 250 students and teachers from 25 Northeast Ohio area schools will participate in an inspirational afternoon where community leaders from a range of professional backgrounds will offer valuable commentary on themes of inspiration, resiliency, and determination for students and teachers alike.
An evening of Hope
The Day of Hope continues later that day with an Evening of Hope, a festive cocktail reception and dinner held on the Campus of Boys Hope Girls Hope in Garfield Heights. The evening offers highlights from the Day of Hope Luncheon as well as honor local individuals from the community whose efforts and accomplishments exemplify the qualities we seek to instill in the young people we serve – leadership, generosity, and perseverance. This year, we are delighted to recognize Marc Stefanski and Dave Dudash as our Pillars of Hope.
