The holidays are widely recognized as the time for giving, which is intrinsic to what makes them so very special. There are always members of our community who need our help, 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. This year The Life Link invites you to share in that spirit of giving at their fundraising event, Keep Hope Alive – “Voices of the Community,” an uplifting evening of stories and songs of hope and inspiration, held at La Fonda Hotel, Friday, December 2, 2022, 5:30 – 8:30 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. Won’t you consider helping their cause, by allowing them to continue providing high quality services that are cost effective and beneficial?

The Keep Hope Alive evening event will begin at 5:30 p.m., with cocktails and conversation, followed at 6:30 p.m. by a festive dinner of Roasted Chicken La Fonda, Chile Seared Salmon, or Roasted Poblano. Wine, champagne and fantastic dessert cakes, created by the No Limits Work Group Clubhouse Chefs, will also be served. At 7 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 members of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, The Jay Heneghan Project, Robyn Ruff-Wagner, and Ricky Duran, a nationally recognized musician who was runner up on The Voice. The emcee for the evening will be Talk Radio 1260 AM and KTRC FM 103.7 host Richard Eeds. Door prizes will be given out throughout the night, including hotel stays, spa packages, and wine tastings, plus each attendee will receive a box of greeting cards designed and produced by Clubhouse artists.

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. Serving Santa Fe since 1987, The Life Link is committed to providing accessible, culturally appropriate, supportive and effective services, made possible by your valuable contributions. Consider helping them with these important services, by giving your time, your energy, and most of all, your support.
