Acting out, destructive tendencies, self-harm – these are all problematic behaviors in children, teens, and young adults. In order to move forward, people need help healing from the emotional hardships that cause painful behaviors. That’s why HopeSpoke works to inspire healthy futures for children and their families through comprehensive behavioral and mental health services in Lincoln. At HopeSpoke, no one is turned away due to the inability to pay for services that range from extended day treatment to outpatient services to crisis intervention.
The Lincoln Rotary Club 14 would like to invite you to participate in our annual Rise.Shine.Give. fundraising event on Saturday, February 11, 2023. Fifty percent of the event proceeds will go to HopeSpoke. The remaining proceeds will help us increase future giving capacity to benefit the numerous community service organizations who apply for funds from our Lincoln Rotary Club 14 Foundation. Past recipients include the Gathering Place, Everett Elementary School, South of Downtown Neighborhood, Tabitha, Child Advocacy Center, Voices of Hope, Junior Achievement, and the Malone Center – to name just a few.


Held at Nebraska Innovation Campus, you and your guests will enjoy a delicious brunch, bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys, a silent auction, a raffle, and much more.
