Local band called The Reel, had a tough decision to make. Our winners were two brothers named Mario and Leeland. They then performed at our signature gala with NeedToBreathe and JohnnySwim.

Break Free Run

Kids Helping Kids helped the foundation, A Change of Pace, in organizing and setting up their annual Break Free (previously known as Run for Courage) running event to raise awareness, and in effort to help stop sex trafficking. Each year they put on a children’s 3k, a run/walk 5k, and a run/walk 10k. At their 2014 run KHK had twenty enthusiastic volunteers to help the vendors unload and set-up, as well as being official cheerers along the course to make the runners morning a little easier. By partnering with foundations such as A Change of Pace we get a chance to make lasting connections and to expand our reach beyond what we could achieve alone.

3rd Annual Benefit Gala

In 2015 we held our third annual gala on January 16th. Our generous title sponsor this year was Wells Fargo, and our two top tier sponsors were Stryker Orthopedics and Crowe Horwath. We had Andy Grammer, a platinum winning artist, as our headliner along with Tyrone Wells as our featured guest.

Our auctions included live auction items such as tickets to the U.S Senior Open, Disneyland tickets for four, and four airline tickets to anywhere flown by Southwest Airlines. Some of our popular silent auction items included a Giants basket with Giants tickets and accessories, a signed Demarcus Cousins jersey, and lots of golf baskets.

Harris Center for the Arts, the Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, allowed us to host our gala using their state of the art center. Our mc this year, chosen from the mc’s at Sac’s Got Talent, was our director of social media, Gracyn Lewis. It was a sold out event and went off very smoothly. With the help of our performers, all of our student members, and most importantly, our attendees, we raised over $96,000 to help kids in need.
