The Global Orphan Project

Saturday, August 10th, 2024

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

The Big Event is an evening dedicated to celebrating hope, transformation, and investment in the lives of vulnerable children and families all over the world. This year, we will focus on the incredible journey God has led us on and the bright future He is guiding us toward to continue our mission to break the orphan cycle through the power of community, commerce, and the love of Jesus. There is so much to celebrate as we embrace the future, and we warmly invite you to be a part of this joyous occasion.
