Hope 100 Christmases

Giving HOPE this Holiday season.

On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, in partnership with SOS Radio 90.5, World Vision, City Serve, Paula White Ministries, and the Nevada Department of Corrections, we will be hosting our 7th annual Christmas event for the children of incarcerated parents.  Our goal is to provide a true holiday experience for the families of incarcerated men and women who will otherwise be unable to spend any time together during this season.  Fundraising for this event will not only provide the resources to hold a “Christmas evening” for the children, but also support our family reunification programs.

“Christmas is about family – it is all about putting aside the challenges and stresses of life and focusing on our loved ones.  Family reunification is one of the most important components of the HOPE for Prisoners program and this event is the start of this process for many of these families.”

Jon D. Ponder Founder & CEO HOPE for Prisoners

Ahern Hotel will transform into 100 individual living rooms complete with a Christmas tree and gifts, a hearty dinner and entertainment throughout the night. Special guests include KSOS Radio 90.5 host Scott Herrold who will emcee, a holiday message from Pastor Paula White, and feature performances by Mike Weaver of Big Daddy Weave.

An army of volunteers from throughout the Las Vegas Valley make this event a success, with a dedicated host for each family and delivering the decorated Christmas tree to their home the following day.

With your generous support we plan to make this year’s event the most inclusive with 100 families invited. Your generous donations will allow us to produce an event that will create holiday memories to last a lifetime.
