2022 NIGHT OF HOPE
SUMMARY

This year, nearly 300 people gathered for our Night of Hope at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Downtown Kalamazoo. The evening offered cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and our well-known silent auction, followed by dinner and a program. This year's Night of Hope was a special one. Melisa Hidić-Kopić, the student who inspired Joanna Shields to create the Jericho Foundation, ultimately fulfilling a little girl's dream, was our main speaker.

On top of the surprise of having Melisa come from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the founder and current Executive Director, Joanna Shields, announced her plans to retire at the end of the year. Joanna is excited to pass the torch to Kellie Simmons, who accepted the role as our new Executive Director beginning January 1, 2023. 

 

Our final speaker of the evening was Lamia Taljanovic Selimovic. Lamia's first experience with our Jericho students was as a speaker at our leadership seminar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a Bosnian-born businesswoman, she saw firsthand how Jericho is making a real impact on the lives of students and their families. 

 

Our student's HOPE is forged through your generosity. These victories are made possible by you! To read more about our students' stories, visit HERE.

 

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for a successful event and an impactful year.
