Shine the Light 2.0

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute

June 20, 2021

Solstice is the longest day of the year. As we start to emerge from the darkness of the global pandemic, we are looking forward to a brighter tomorrow. How we emerge from this time – as individuals, as an organization, as a community, and as a society – will shape the future.

In 2020, Hollyhock was unable to offer any in-person programming and had to lay off the majority of our staff (learn more about that journey in this short documentary). In 2021, we will be operating our campus at a significantly reduced capacity to meet safety protocols, keeping our guests, staff, and island safe. We are estimating a $400,000 loss in addition to the $325,000 in loss in 2020. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 this year to offset these losses and to re-emerge from this pandemic with strength. Help us harness the energy of the solstice to emerge even brighter so that we can continue serving the needs of our community. 

Shine the Light will meet this turning of the season with the radiance of many of our brilliant presenters and friends. Come together and celebrate summer solstice with an 8 hour virtual Hollyhock-a-thon – showcasing music, dance, nature immersion, learning, and more. We will also set intensions with the summer solstice at 8:31pm PT. Your support during this time will provide the emergency relief necessary for us to continue to be a beacon of hope and possibility at a time when it is most needed.
