Keep Hope Alive -

The holidays are a time for giving. There are always members of our community who need our help to keep hope alive, and nobody understands that better than The Life Link, the non-profit organization that spends the entire year improving the lives of those encumbered by homelessness, mental illness, and addiction. As we experience an increase in mental health challenges, our compassionate support for one another is crucial.

This year The Life Link invites you to share in that spirit of giving at their annual fundraising event Keep Hope Alive – Voices of the Community Holiday Event and Fundraiser, an uplifting evening of stories and songs of hope and inspiration, held at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, Sunday, December 3, 2023, 5:30 – 8 p.m.

The Life Link believes that people function best in an environment where they are treated with dignity and respect and are given opportunities for self-renewal and growth. Their mission includes helping hungry, homeless, and displaced individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency through emergency assistance, housing, employment services, and other supportive programs.

Keep Hope Alive: An Evening of Cheer

The Keep Hope Alive evening event begins at 5:30 p.m., with cocktails, Gruet champagne, delicious appetizers, and scrumptious sweets. At 6:30 p.m. the program starts, with presentations from Life Link staff, clients, and elected officials, followed by performances from some of the brightest lights of the Santa Fe music scene.

Slated to perform are local favorites JJ and the Hooligans, Sarah Nickerson, Alex Maryol, and members of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale. Also included is opera singer Javier Ortiz performing uplifting songs to bring good cheer and Keep Hope Alive.

But it all begins with you. Buying a ticket, or sponsoring the Keep Hope Alive Gala Fundraiser will support The Life Link’s ability to help reduce homelessness in Santa Fe, by helping vulnerable community members get the help they need to rebuild their lives.

His initial work was as manager of the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market. Over the two years in that job, he became friends with many of northern New Mexico’s finest food purveyors. When … Read More
