A Night of Unprecedented Success: Healing Through Hope Gala Sets New C4 Fundraising Record!

At this year’s Healing Through Hope Gala, something extraordinary happened. We shattered records and surpassed all expectations, raising an astounding $85,000 more than any other event in C4 history! This remarkable achievement speaks volumes about the generosity and commitment of our community.


In a year where the need was greater than ever before, our goal was ambitious. But thanks to the unwavering support of our donors, sponsors, and attendees, we were able to raise necessary funds to continue to support our programs in the city of Chicago. CEO Kerri Brown captured the essence of the evening perfectly, stating, “We didn’t just host a gala, we marveled, experienced, and participated in hope!”

The outpouring of generosity at the gala was truly inspiring. From heartfelt donations to enthusiastic bidding in the silent auction, every contribution played a vital role in our success. Together, we proved that when we come together with a shared purpose, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish.


As we reflect on this incredible milestone, we’re reminded of the profound impact that hope can have on our lives and our communities. And as we look to the future, we’re filled with optimism and determination to continue making a difference, one act of kindness and generosity at a time.
