Description: 

Trees of Hope is an awareness and fundraising event in Richmond Virginia focused on youth mental health. This is a moving program focused on hope, success stories, memorials, and music. (Last year’s program outline is here.)

  • Greg McQuade from CBS Channel 8 will be emcee
  • Youth violinists will be performing
  • VCU Ramifications will be performing, an acapella group  (they were a HUGE hit last year)
  • Sophia Nader is back. She travels around the country performing and is from Midlothian
  • Hunter Zupo, guitar will perform with us again
  • Awards info coming soon. We have two winners of the Ambassador of Hope award–a local educator and a Chesterfield County teen
  • Announcement of the memorial bricks for those we’ve lost to mental illness
  • There will be speakers but these presentations are brief

This is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of families struggling with the mental illnesses of their children right here in our community of Central Virginia.
