The Restored Gala is a unique event with a meaningful mission: to restore hope to women in Haiti. Twenty-five Hope Restorers have embarked on a journey to fulfill this mission by restoring an item that the world would deem as junk and raise $1,000 in the process.  The money they raise will be matched by a generous donor, and their restored pieces will be auctioned off at the Gala on September 22, 2018. Join us by getting your tickets for the event and helping julie reach her goal by donating to her campaign below.

Meet Julie


My name is Julie Baldini, aka: jbald, baldy, jules. I am a wife, and also a mother to 3 adult children. I work part-time on Oakbrook Church's Family Ministry team. I have been to Haiti 4 times for missions work, and I have loved each and every experience. I want to see all people around the world experience the love of Jesus and to know the hope that comes from having a relationship with Him. I have a creative side, and I am so excited to be able to use my creativity to restore a broken and forgotten item into something to behold. My hope is that thousands of women in Haiti will experience that same kind of restoration because of a place called Nadege! My prayer is for all women in Haiti to believe that they matter, and they are something to behold!
