2019 Better Futures Luncheon

Our annual Better Futures Luncheon is an opportunity for you to be a force for positive change. Join us and bid on student-made centerpieces, hear directly from our students about the power of glass art and adult mentorship, and learn how you can help us connect our students to better futures.

Thanks to the support from our community, we offer tuition-free, experiential arts learning in two dedicated hot shops to create powerful change and long-term outcomes in the lives of our youth and their families. Through our programs, partnerships, and youth advocacy, Hilltop Artists works with students to address barriers they face in achieving social and academic success.
