Thank you for supporting the 8th annual Growing Hope Breakfast to benefit the services provided by our Regional Office in Belleville! The event, which was held April 8, 2017, drew more than 250 guests who enjoyed a delicious hot breakfast buffet that included the famous French toast casserole prepared by the volunteer cooks at Hecker Community Center.
Those attending helped raised more than $9,000 to support programs including counseling, foster care, adoption and pregnancy care, and St. John Bosco Children’s Center, a therapeutic residential center for severely abused and neglected children.
Special thank you to our presenting sponsor, Gori Julian & Associates; the Waterloo German Band for leading guests in the National Anthem; O.O.P.A. for their entertainment during breakfast; the breakfast committee; kitchen staff and servers; volunteers; and our sponsors and donors for making the event a success!
