Planning for “Let Love Shine” 2023 is Well Under Way.


This year’s location will be the Ribbon Town Ballroom in the new Four Winds Hotel South Bend. Parking at the hotel is a snap, and the elegant and spacious atmosphere will provide the perfect setting for perusing silent auction items while enjoying the dual bar areas with your favorite beverage. The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres, premium open bar, gourmet meal and dessert.  There will even be a live artist event throughout the evening. A special hotel room rate is available on a limited basis for those attending – make a night of it!


All money raised will be used for purchasing new clothing for infants and children of St. Joseph County living in need. Last year, we provided clothing to over 4,500 infants and children from birth through age fourteen, layettes for babies, and clothing and essentials for abused and neglected children entering the foster care system, as well as scholarships to clients. We do not receive funding from any government grants or the United Way, so 100% of our funds come from our amazing community.



Come join the fun, along with your

friends and family!
