Seventh annual HOPE in the AIR gala will bring the community together

Every year, HOPE in the AIR brings community-minded people together for an incredible night of entertainment and celebration of stewardship.

Every year, HOPE in the AIR brings community-minded people together for an incredible night of entertainment and celebration of stewardship. The passionate people behind the annual gala handpick nonprofit programs in their growth stage impacting Southeastern Pennsylvania to raise awareness and support for—and attendees get to see the remarkable change that can come through these programs because of the funds they give.

“HOPE in the AIR would not have started, nor would it be where it is today, without everyone’s daily activities and involvement as well as the relationships that we have built with individuals and organizations who continue to support our endeavors.”
– Sasha Wawrzyniak, Vice President at Viocity Group, creators of HOPE in the AIR

Special guest: Speed painter Cody Sabol

Back for its seventh year, HOPE in the AIR has a one-of-a-kind experience planned for this year’s gala, including a live and silent auction and special guest Cody Sabol. Cody is a nationally recognized speed painter, who creates realistic paintings in a matter of minutes—several pieces created during the evening will even be in the live auction!

This year, HOPE in the AIR has chosen Hospice & Community Care’s Sunflower Pediatric Program and the Facility Dog Program at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital as its 2023 recipients. The goal of HOPE in the AIR is to find causes that have a direct impact on people in the community by sharing hope. Through these programs, lives are enriched, suffering is eased, and memories are made.

“Everyone needs a shoulder to lean on at times or the extra encouragement to continue onward. Through the generous support of HOPE in the AIR, we have been honored in helping to provide this support since 2017.”
– Chris Miller, President at Viocity Group
