Hunter's Day of Hope & Prayer for Children

As a foundation we seek to inspire an appreciation to God for all children. Hunter's Day of Hope & Prayer for Children helps fulfill this primary goal -- to remind parents how blessed they are to have the gift of children and to thank God for them everyday!

February 14th (Hunter & his dad Jim's birthday) is proclaimed in the state of New York as Hunter's Hope Day of Hope & Prayer for Children. We aspire for February 14th to become a nationally proclaimed Day of Hope & Prayer for Children.

In Western New York, we celebrate this special time each year on the Saturday closest to February 14th. During this special afternoon, families come together and spend time just having fun (music, dancing, games, face painting, food, and more). Most importantly we all gather together and pray for all of our children -- how wonderful is that?!

For those outside of the Western New York community we encourage you to take part through our virtual celebration!


Join us for the 18th Annual Hunter's Day of Hope & Prayer for Children...
