Walk and Rock for the Kids... and Journey

What an event! Hope Productions, created to provide resources to support youth and children’s charities throughout the U.S., held an inagural event here in Sacramento Saturday, May 23rd. It began with a walk around midtown Sacramento that started at Raley Field, down Capital to the Capitol, up 10th St. to K St., throiugh the Downtown Mall then back to Raley Field. With bands stationed along the route and one at The Hard Rock Cafe, over 1,000 walkers showed up to support the cause of seven charities in their inagural year. They raised over $850,000. The charities that benefited were:

Boys and Girls Club of Greater Sacramento

CASA for Children, El Dorado County


Keaton Raphael Memorial

River Cats Foundation

Wind Youth Services

People Reaching Out
