The 2023 Little Lights Benefit was a success!

On Saturday, October 28th, we welcomed more than 200 guests to Hook Hall to celebrate our work of empowering rising leaders and creating cycles of lasting impact in DC’s public housing communities.

We felt inspired by the stories shared by Cierra, Crystal, and Courtenay, three women who attended Little Lights programs as students and returned as adults to be full-time staff members and leaders.

Because of the generosity and support of our amazing donors, we were able to unlock $50,000 in matching funds and raise more than $216,000, all of which will directly fund our holistic and empowering programs. Thank you to the table hosts, donors, church sponsors, and individual sponsors whose generosity is sustaining our work with DC students and families. Thank you also to our corporate partners and individual sponsors for helping to make the Benefit possible.
