Mobile Pathways proudly invites you to celebrate with us at Pathways of Hope, our highly anticipated virtual gala experience.

The  doors open for a virtual wine tasting hosted by Bouchaine Vineyards on Wednesday, October 21st at 5:30 pm (PST).

Whether attending via phone or laptop,
our guests will have the choice of hearing from immigration thought leaders, learn about fine wines from sommeliers, attend a cooking class, or have a private chatroom with friends. See the schedule tab for full details of break-out rooms.

The main event begins at 6:30 pm (PST) and will feature speakers, videos, and other surprises as we review our breakthrough year.

In addition to presenting this not-to-be-missed virtual gathering, the Pathways of Hope Committee seeks to raise $50,000 to help support Mobile Pathways' critical work that provides immigrants and refugees access to justice.
