HHOA Inaugural Fundraiser Gala
On November 4th, 2017, we held our inaugural fundraiser gala at the Luskin Conference Center on the UCLA campus. With over 300 friends and supporters of HHOA, the festive gala was a huge success.
All those who attended heard the inspirational testimony of Jean Claude Rwagasore, the director of Best Family Rwanda and were uplifted by the message of HOPE in Rwanda from Dr. Thomas Lee, the co-founder of His Hands on Africa. There were also awesome entertainment by Mr. Tavi Jinariu, the acapella group - Underscore, and an African dance group.
The funds raised will be used to build the HOPE Dental Center, the foundation of HHOA's ministry in Rwanda. BIG THANK YOU to all who attended. Look forward to seeing all of you back for this year's fundraiser event!
