The Giving Voice Benefit is a yearly fundraising event that raises money for and awareness of how ILI changes lives for the immigrant community in the Pioneer Valley. Our Giving Voice Fundraiser is a free event thanks to our generous sponsors. All funds raised go directly to support our Free English for Immigrants and Refugees Program.
This year’s event began at 5:30pm at the Hotel Northampton with wonderful hor d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Guests had many opportunities to meet our students and hear their stories of how ILI has made a difference in their lives.
