Ripples of Hope

Ripples of Hope is an annual breakfast fundraiser held each fall at the Will Rogers Theatre, with 150 to 200 attendees.

Individual tickets are $50 and sponsorship levels range from $500-$5,000.

The 2019 inaugural event featured keynote speaker, Elizabeth Clinton, whose father was one of four men wrongly convicted of a tragic murder in Ada, Oklahoma, leaving her without a father for the 12 years he was in prison. Her family’s story was featured in the compelling Netflix and John Grisham documentary and book, The Innocent Man, released December 2018.

Every dollar raised during Ripples of Hope will support children, teens and adults who have experienced traumatic loss due to death or divorce.
