  5. One Night of Hope

  6. Hosted by Project Zero. A few tickets are still available. This is the first annual "One Night of Hope Summit". One night with multiple organizations all working together to raise awareness about adoption and foster care in Arkansas. The purpose for this event is to raise funds that will assist Project Zero with Matching events for waiting kids and waiting families. It is our goal to raise awareness about the need for more adoptive and foster families, to educate the community about the process of becoming an open home, a mentor and an advocate for foster kids. We plan to do this in a fun creative way. Hear from local adoptive families and foster teens as they talk about their experiences and hope for the foster care system. The night will include dinner, raffle items, silent auction and door prizes, along with music and entertainment. This is a night you will not want to miss!
