Casa de Esperanza’s Gala Raises a Record-breaking Million Dollars: On April 22, Casa De Esperanza de los Niños held their annual gala at the Hobby Center to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. Over 600 guests attended the auction and dinner with food donated, as it has been for the last 23 years by Cordua Restaurants. Over a million dollars was raised at the event.

Casa de Esperanza de los Niños—the House of Hope for Children—is a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse, neglect, or the effects of HIV. Casa de Esperanza provides residential, medical, and psychological care according to the needs of each child. The goal of Casa de Esperanza is to return physically and emotionally healthy children to stabilized homes where caregivers can safely provide daily care.
