The 2018 Igniting Change Masquerade was breath-taking. The lavish masks, fun-filled photo booth, and jam packed dance floor kept the evening flowing with smiles and great vibes. Thank you to the volunteers, Gideon's Promise board of directors, community partners, the event's sponsors, supporters, and in-kind donors for your continuous generosity.
The event raised $54,000 towards scholarships so our public defenders have the necessary tools to be the best advocates for their clients and their clients' families. These dedicated men and women are building a movement that is rewriting the narrative about what justice means in America. Thank you to all that were able to join us and to contributors that donated in support of a mobilizing evening. Enjoy photos from the evening (coming soon).
Everyone looked amazing!
