Brighten the Holidays With Winter Wonderland 2019

 

Can you feel it?  It’s coming soon!  That’s right the Winter Wonderland Project is HERE!!

Each year, supporters of Steven’s Hope gather together to support families with ill children to make the holidays a joyous time.  Parents of these children are facing so much stress: emotional, physical and financial.  For many, finances are so stretched that there may not be any presents to share on that special day.  

This is a perfect time for you, your family, your neighbors, your office, your civic group or club to make a real difference in the lives of a sick child, their siblings and their parents.

It’s easy.  

You can adopt a family and possibly fill their Christmas gift wishes.

You can host a toy drive for new, unwrapped toys for children 0 to 18 years of age.

You can sponsor the Winter Wonderland project with a financial contribution.

Above all, you can be an advocate for the benefits Steven’s Hope provides families.

Ballpark Night July 3

There is nothing quite like enjoying baseball on a warm summer evening in California, eating a hot dog, sipping on a soda, laughing at the team mascot and cheering on the home team.

On July 3, that is exactly what Steven’s Hope will be doing at LoanMart Field in Rancho Cucamonga.  You see, every year, Steven’s Hope invites families that it is assisting to take a day away from all their troubles, doctor appointments, financial worries and lack of funds.  That happens at Ballpark Night.  

All members of the sick child’s family get to come to cheer for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Baseball Team and Steven’s Hope pays for everything!  Tickets, hot dog, soda: all on us!  And after the game is over, the Quakes will have an awesome fireworks display that is perfect for Independence Day, even if it’s one day early!

Supporters of SHFC can make a donation of $20 to cover the cost of tickets and food for each person in the family.  $100 will help 5 family members attend.  And if you would like to join us, tickets in our section will be $10 each, but you’re on your own for food and drink.  It’s a great way to get to meet and visit with some of the families who are going through very trying times.

For more information, call the SHFC office at 909-373-0678 and speak to Amanda to sponsor a child, a family or to get tickets for yourself. 

El Torito Hosts St Patrick’s Day Event

“This year puts us over the ten year mark doing this event with El Torito,” said co-founder and Executive Director, Tony Cappelli.  “Proceeds from these events have made a real difference to families dealing with a child needing a heart transplant, or receiving chemotherapy.  For many that travel in from out of state or out of the country, Steven’s Hope is the closest thing they have to home and a family, so proceeds from this event are very important.”

The all day family friendly service begins with the traditional El Torito Sunday Brunch at 9AM. At 3PM, the Mexican Irish buffet will open up featuring corned beef, cabbage, potatoes along with all the traditional Mexcian food El Torito is known for.   There will be raffles and contests and music lots of green stuff – including green beer.

Family Day Hopes For Passes

Steven’s Hope has a Family Day on October 27. This special day happens every quarter for families in the We Care Program.

Families of seriously ill children get to gather to make Halloween pumpkins, decorate cookies and have a bit of fun while parents are able to shop for much needed clothing through a partnership with A Lot Of Good Thrift Store.

Aside from the clothes and activities, we would love to provide each child and family member we serve with a move ticket. Our goal is to get 50 (fifty) movie passes to distribute to the families.  With an average ticket price of $13.00, the goal is to raise $650 or more to purchase tickets.  If it is possible to get to $1300, families would be able to get vouchers for refreshments, too!

If you are interested in purchasing movie tickets, they can be mailed or delivered to Steven’s Hope for Children, 1014 W Foothill Blvd., Suite B, Upland, CA 91786 on or before October 24, 2018. To make a donation for the tickets, you can go online to https://stevenshope.org/support-us/ 

Be sure to note that this is for Family Day!

If you have any questions, please call the Development Department at Steven’s Hope. 909-373-0678

Pizza fundraiser

On June 27, six MOD Pizza locations will be hosting a fundraiser to support Steven’s Hope for Children. The event, the first of four scheduled fundraisers, is part of the pizza company’s community involvement, or what they like to call MODNESS.

As explained on the company website, “Giving back to the communities we serve is part of our purpose-driven mission at MOD. We support a variety of charities throughout the year, working primarily with groups that serve youth and families. Our efforts are focused at the local level, in the neighborhoods where we live and work. To be considered, your organization needs to be located near a MOD Pizza and provide services within that area.”

All customers who present a printed or electronic copy of the event flyer will have 20% of their food bill donated to Steven’s Hope for Children.  That includes pizza, salad and soft drinks.  

The six store locations are:

Winter Wonderland Project Distributing Smiles

Since its inception, The Winter Wonderland Project has been brightening the holidays for hundreds and hundreds of families from seven different hospitals helping to treat seriously ill or injured children.  The 2017 campaign is in full swing.  The need for toy drives, toys and sponsors is up, but time is not!
