Join us for the 16th annual Syble Hopp School Winter Blast

Bringing Hope to the lives of the children we serve!

The Winter Blast is an event to celebrate the miracles that happen every day, raise funds for the critical programs provided by Syble Hopp, and come together for an evening of fun and meaning.

The evening will include cocktails, a gourmet dinner, silent and live auctions, and raffles. All proceeds go to supporting the annual curriculum funding requirements for Syble Hopp School. The Syble Hopp Parent Organization is the sole fundraising arm which makes Community Based Instruction, Lions Camp/Day Camp, and Special Olympics possible for our students. Together, we can work to ensure that #2020WinterBlast raises the funds necessary to enable our students to become successful and productive members of our communities!
