Picnic – Sunday, June 2, 2019

Join the Arlington Academy of Hope for our Annual Volunteer Picnic when we thank YOU! The picnic at Lyon Park Community Center includes food, games, plus new activities for everyone. Tickets will be available for a moon bounce, face painting, and a balloon artist for the kids. We’ll also reveal the winner of the Global Strides 5K T-shirt design contest. AAH wouldn’t be who we are today without our wonderful volunteers. Let’s celebrate together!

Gala –  Thursday, October 24, 2019

Save the date for our Gala! Join us at the Clarendon Ballroom for an evening of friends and fundraising on Thursday, October 24, 2019. With silent and live auctions filled with fabulous prizes, let’s have a bit of fun while raising the funding needed to support AAH’s mission to partner with communities in rural Uganda and improve the quality of their daily life.  A great evening for a fantastic cause!  More information to follow.

I give to AAH because of the clear, direct impact. There are so few “middle men” – the money I donate directly changes the life of a young friend (and scholar) in Uganda.
