It will be a fantastic night of fun and great music to raise funds for the education of some of the poorest children in the world, living in villages outside Victoria Falls.  We have been supporting the commuity school in this area to help children in the most desperate situations with food, clothing, and education.  Our desire is continue educating these children so that they might have an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty in their families.   

Many of the children we support will be the first of their families to receive a high school diploma!

Victoria Falls

      Linda Community is full of bright children aspiring to become doctors, teachers, and business professionals.  

     We want to help them realize their dreams so that they can make their community as beautiful as Victoria Falls down the road.  

       Our pressing need is to continue educating the kids we have already been sponsoring through elementary school.  The children we have already been helping are being hindered from entering middle and high school classes because they cannot pay the fees or because of a lack of facilites and teachers.  Our 2019 LHI Gala goal is to raise $50,000 to either continue building a NGO high school to meet this need or to provide scholarships so that kids today can get enrolled in existing classes.  Our vision is to educate this next generation of Zambians so that they are equipped to give back to the community to make their country safer and more stable in the years ahead. 

       In addition to helping Linda community children, Gala donations will assist families in other impoverished areas through future Living Hope initiatives in Guatemala, Zimbabwe, India, and Pakistan!  In all these places, we are working to help the vulnerable and train community leaders.  Join us as we are creating a community at a time!

Event Details:

       Beginning at 6:30 p.m., join us for a cocktail hour featuring an open bar and, for a small donation of $5, get our signature drink the "Rusty Gate" in a specail Loving Hope glass.  This drink has been created specifically for the Gala by Russo's expert bar tenders.  In jazz, a "Rusty Gate" is a person who doesn't play an instrument but wants to support the band. We at Living Hope know that you might not personally meet one of the vulnerable kids we help. But, without your support, without you partnering with us, we wouldn't be able to come alongside the children who are in the most need or to train leaders that will make a difference for them tomorrow. Thank you for your support!

      Russo's will be serving heavy hor d'oevres throughout the evening.  

Tickets cost $100

      Enjoy live music by St. Louis' own National Blues Museum Band while socializing around heavy hors d'oeuvres and exciting games.  Cocktail attire is recommended.
