Buy Your Tickets to HOP's April 19 "Under One Sky" Benefit Evening!

We are very excited to announce that HOP's "Under One Sky" Benefit Evening will take place at Chicago's magnificent Adler Planetarium on Sunday, April 19 from 6 to 10 p.m. CLICK HERE to buy your tickets for this spectacular evening of education and inspiration! Tickets are $150 if you purchase them on or before March 31; tickets purchased on April 1 or later will cost $175.  Tickets will likely sell out and will not be available at the door, so don’t delay!

The centerpiece of the evening will be a conversation facilitated by Jerome McDonnell, the award-winning host of WBEZ’s daily “Worldview” program, with a Jewish Israeli and a Palestinian Muslim who are visiting Chicago.  The discussion will touch upon the long history of tension between the two nations, heart-breaking loss, missed opportunities, encouraging signs and the strong desire for rapprochement and true peace.  

In addition, an articulate and creative group of HOP alumni will share their perspectives via video, and we will hear from a group of HOP parents from the Middle East who will tell their own inspiring stories of peace and reconciliation.  

Other highlights of the evening will include complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a sumptuous dinner and dessert, extraordinary silent auction items, and an opportunity to visit “Shoot for the Moon”, the Adler’s breathtaking exhibit about America’s program to land a man on the moon.  One of the finest features of the evening, of course, is the opportunity to visit with friends and other HOP supporters! 

This will be an unforgettable evening, and we hope you can join us!  CLICK HERE to buy your tickets.  Remember: Tickets are $150 if you purchase them on or before March 31; they are $175 if purchased on April 1 or later. 

Thank you for your support!  We look forward to seeing you on April 19!
