Maybe you’ve heard… we’re feeling pretty #inspired here at Spark. We are eagerly looking forward to our fall event at the Chicago Cultural Center on Friday, October 17th. It will feature a curated photography exhibit, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and drinks, including Lagunitas beer and a signature cocktail. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase framed photographs from the photo exhibit and Spark Ventures coffee table photo books. But the most exciting piece? We are thrilled that we will have some very special guests joining us from our partner organization, Hope Ministries, in Zambia! Tickets are limited (tables are already sold out), so get yours here!


Margaret Mumba: Co-founder and Director of Hope Ministries

Chimfwembe Ng’oma: Head Teacher at Hope Community School

Cephas Mwanza: Former student of Hope Community School & resident of Hope House Orphanage

Our guests will be staying with us for a few weeks and would love to meet as many supporters as possible. We will be hosting a number of #inspired events in October and November, and you are invited! These events will be held in Chicago, Kansas City, Palo Alto, and Washington, D.C., and we will be giving updates on current projects in Zambia and Nicaragua and sharing Spark stories and news, upcoming events, ways to get involved, and opportunities to travel with us. If you are a current Spark supporter or newly interested and would like to join us at any of these events, please reach out to Stephanie.
