Sacred Ground is an anti-violence organization based in Chicago that has partnered with Hirsch Metropolitan High School in Chicago’s Grand Crossing community. Since 2012, Sacred Ground has helped set up mentoring programs, student workshops, parent forums, and Teen Town Hall sessions and funded scholarships to Hirsch graduates. For more information, please visit http://sacredgroundministries.com/gala.html.
However, this partnership takes time, commitment, dedication and money, and Sacred Ground has sacrificed them all. Now we need your support!
Sacred Ground is proud to host our 1st Annual Light Outshines Violence Everyday (L.O.V.E.) Gala, inspired by 1 Peter 4:8: “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, love covers a multitude of sins.” All proceeds from the Gala will help fund our comunity programs. The gala will feature dinner, a raffle, live performances, and keynote speaker Dr. Byron T. Brazier. It will also be moderated by ABC 7's Evelyn Holmes.
We are hoping to raise enough funds to establish a full-time tutoring program at Hirsch High School for the 2016-17 school year. Please join us to get introduced to Sacred Ground’s work and contribute to our mission to bring L.O.V.E. and hope to all of our young people!
