“An Evening of Hope: Starring Evan Lysacek and friends benefitting the Stephanie Joseph Memorial Fund in collaboration with Make-A-Wish foundation”
Date: September 28th, 2008
“An Evening of Hope…” was held in September of 2008 at the Fox Valley Ice Arena in Fox Valley IL. The event included performances by a cast of thirteen Olympic, World, and Nationally ranked figure skaters as well as up and coming local talent. Special tributes to Stephanie and world class figure skating inspired hope for an audience of almost 2,000. Through generous donations, an extensive silent auction, ticket sales, and sponsorship, SJMF raised over $75,000 and donated $40,000 to Make A Wish. SJMF’s donation grated the wishes of 8 young children; sending them on trips to Disney World and more.
