Ryan’s Rays 2018 Gala Dinner & Auction


Words cannot express our gratitude to everyone who came out for our 2nd annual Gala dinner and auction, as well as the over 200 businesses and individuals that contributed to our silent & live auction. As a result of your generousity, over $60,000 was raised to further the work of Inclusive Education in Ethiopia.

We were thrilled to be able to share with you the work that is being done in Ethiopia for children living with disabilities through Ryan’s Rays and our partnership with Christian Horizons Global. The money raised at this year’s gala will continue to expand our work of building, equipping and sustaining inclusive education classrooms in Ethiopia and we look forward to sharing these accomplishments with you in the coming year!

Once again, a big thanks to the many volunteers who contribute their time and energy to making Ryan’s Rays happen so that every dollar raised can go directly to the projects we support.

On behalf of Ryan’s Rays, a big THANK YOU to EVERYONE who made this event possible. We are humbled by your generousity.



Ryan’s Rays would like to say thank you to everyone who generously donated items for our fundraising auction.

This evening wouldn’t be possible without you.
