Join us as we spread HOPE in our community!
In 2015, the artisans and craftsmen of Viocity Group created metal butterflies which quickly became recognized as a symbol of peace and hope. As the popularity of these butterflies grew, we started to see that they had a larger purpose, and we began to dream about what that may be. In 2017 our dreams started to become a reality with the creation of Hope in the Air. Since 2017, Hope in the Air and our supporters have met some amazing individuals and together we have helped provide hope through this effort. This year’s recipients were Hospice & Community Care’s Sunflower Pediatric Program AND the Facility Dog Program at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital. The goal of HOPE in the AIR is to find causes that have a direct impact on people in our community by sharing hope. Through the Sunflower Pediatric Program and the Children’s Hospital Facility Dog Program, lives are enriched, suffering is eased, and memories are made. These benefits are why HOPE in the AIR continues our mission. Your support at this year’s gala enabled us to sustain the endowment programs that were previously created for both of these worthwhile programs, sharing our mission of hope into the future. The gala was held on Saturday, September 9th. We are sincerely grateful to everyone who made our evening a huge success.
Through your generosity, HOPE in the AIR is able to continue supporting the Penn State Children’s Hospital Facility Dog Program. Find out what a day in the life of Kaia the Facility Dog looks like.
