Night of Hope and Caring

We have a passion for kids. Help us level the playing field by participating in the Night of Hope & Caring.

Join us in helping kids by leveling the playing field!

Field trips, school supplies, social etiquette, clean clothes, winter boots, etc., these are all part of a childhood experience. Unfortunately, not all schools benefit from a parent support group such as a PTA or PTO that would normally help provide some of these resources.

What is it?

Night of Hope & Caring is an annual event held on August 21, 2021 this year during a Sioux Falls Storm football game. It is a night meant to bring the community together in order to fund raise and highlight a local need in our elementary schools in efforts to help level the playing field for kids who do not benefit from parent support groups such as PTA's or PTO's.

Who benefits?

Each dollar provides for more of a well-rounded school experience for local elementary students who can't generally afford certain opportunities. Experiences like field trips help students learn proper behavior in social settings and build vocabulary they otherwise would not have the opportunity to build. They also help students learn the benefits of following social norms, such as regular school attendance, appropriate classroom behaviors and giving your best effort on classroom assignments.

How can I participate?

We would love nothing more than to give thousands to our local Sioux Falls Elementary Schools. Here's how you can help:
