Event Details

OneSky believes all children deserve a bright start to life -- and we refuse to leave that up to luck. Over the last 19 years we have reached more than 150,000 orphaned and vulnerable children in China, ensuring healthy development in the early years and beyond. And now, we're ready to bring the special OneSky magic to children in Vietnam too!
Please join us for a fun-filled evening with beloved children's author Grace Lin as we celebrate what we've accomplished in our first twenty years and talk about what's next for OneSky and the children we serve.
We are mindful that this is a children's event on a school night -- so the dim sum buffet will be ready as the doors open at 6pm.  Vegan and vegetarian options will of course be offered. The OneSky team will provide an update on OneSky, and then Grace Lin will read stories to the children (feel free to bring our youngest guests in their pajamas, ready to fall asleep on the ride home!)  Grace will also be available for some book signings.  All families will receive a copy of Jenny Bowen's heartwarming memoir, Wish You Happy Forever:  What China's Orphans Taught Me About Moving Mountains.
A special thank you to our generous Host Committee -- Susannah Files, Carolee Inskeep, and Diana McCown.  We could not have pulled together this evening without them and their undying commitment to vulnerable children around the world.  


 All proceeds benefit the children in OneSky programs in China and Vietnam!


What about parking?

The Cady-Lee House is one block from the Takoma Metro station.  There is some parking in the lot behind the house, and also street parking options.

Can I bring a friend?

The number of guests is strictly limited by the Cady-Lee House, and Grace Lin prefers an intimate crowd.  Therefore, this is an "invitation only" event.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to contact Heather Mayes Gleason at or 301-580-7639

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

This is a ticketless event. Once you have registered we will have your name on the guest list.

Can I update my registration information?

Please email Heather with any updates to your registration information.
