Mar 15, 2019 | Member News

Life for the Innocent (LFTI), an organization providing support to children recovered from human trafficking in South Asia, is hosting the third annual Lantern Gala on Friday, April 12, at the Hilton Fort Collins. This is one of Northern Colorado’s largest events benefiting child survivors of trafficking, with over 400 guests expected to attend.

The evening’s festivities will celebrate LFTI supporters and raise vital funds to provide medical care, housing, education, counseling, and adoption for rescued children in South Asia. Guests will hear from staff members about recently visiting LFTI’s program overseas and see footage of the transformations made possible by supporters. The Lantern Gala also serves as an opportunity to connect with others who are passionate about fighting modern-day slavery.

In addition to a reception, dinner and program, the evening will feature an exciting live auction led by former Denver Bronco Reggie Rivers. Reggie is also an author and inspirational speaker committed to helping Colorado nonprofits raise millions of dollars as a charity auctioneer. This is Reggie’s first appearance for LFTI.

Life for the Innocent’s 3rd Annual Lantern Gala is open to the public. Earlybird individual tickets are $65 and table sponsorships start at $500. Sponsorships and tickets may be purchased at
