Heart 4 Hope (H4H) is The Hope Center’s largest annual fundraiser. On Friday, March 1, 2019, our annual Heart 4 Hope: Kansas City Difference Makers benefit will showcase The Hope Center, a community and youth development organization that has invested in the thriving of youth and families on the east-side for twenty years. Our mission to develop healthy communities where the vulnerable can have hope and flourish for the past two decades has served more than 15,000 individuals living, working and thriving in the Santa Fe, Ivanhoe and Oak Park Neighborhoods.

The evening will offer a fundraising auction, dinner and dessert, an awards ceremony for the Mike Darby Servant Leadership Award and live entertainment by the talented Lonnie McFadden.  As a KC Difference Maker, please consider supporting The Hope Center as we strive to support our 200+ students through curriculum-based youth development programs and by helping us raise funds to purchase a 15-passenger bus.
