Charity Partner




Proceeds from this event benefit Hope and a Future.  


In 2004, Hope & A Future, an Arizona 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian organization, was formed to continue affecting the lives of foster children who have grown beyond the age limits of other organizations. Not long after – in 2006 – they realized their goal of providing their first summer camp in Arizona designed for kids from twelve to fifteen. Since then, they’ve grown with every camp and with new programs that provide hope and a future to Arizona’s foster children.




Every foster child deserves hope and a bright future. Together, we can help them reach their potential and achieve their dreams.




More than 18,000 children live in the Arizona foster care system and your donations help to serve those children in need.




Hope & A Future has helped thousands of children since 2004, from camp and learning life skills all the way to graduating college.
