JW’s Celebration of Hope – a Huge Success!

JW’s Celebration of Hope – a Huge Success!

JW House’s new annual fundraiser, JW’s Celebration of Hope, gathered 300 supporters of JW’s dream at Villa Ragusa on the morning of April 30th. After a poem by Mattie Stepenak, another young man taken too soon, audience members heard testimony from staff and board members, including a video (below) highlighting JW House services. A very special family, the Iorns family, was scheduled to do a live testimonial about their time at JW House. Two days before the event, their little baby began running a fever. Ever the strong mother, Camille Iorns recorded a special video just for JW House. The video was the centerpiece of a wonderful program. We are thrilled to share it with you! The event was a huge success, raising over $150,000 in gifts for 2015 and over years to come. If you would like to make a gift to support JW House, please click here.  ... Read the full article
