Michelangelo and company will be performing a private show for the Utah Chapter of HopeKids Thursday, April 19, 2012.
HopeKids is a 501(c)(3) that works with families who have children with life-threatening medical conditions like cancer and many chronic health conditions. HopeKids serves families throughout Utah,
Idaho, Wyoming, and parts of Colorado and Nevada. These children are treated at Primary Children's Medical Center, University of Utah, Shriners Hospital and others.
HopeKids helps provide hope to these families by arranging highly-anticipated events--like movies, sporting events, camping trips...anything a family can do together. We strongly believe that people who are
being treated for serious illnesses do better when they have something to look forward to--it gives them hope for tomorrow.
HopeKids Utah is a small organization with a large impact and continues to grow at an astounding rate. The director, C. R. Oldham, launched the HopeKids Utah chapter in September 2008 with 30 families and now serves over 490 families.
An average of 3-4 new families join HopeKids each week. What HopeKids offers to their families is a lifeline for them and we would like to raise awareness in the community about what we have to offer.
