"Pass the HAT" Donations



2020 TOP HAT Recipient is Hope House

Hope House provides a home for those young people who may have “fallen through the cracks” of other governmental and/or private agencies.


Our mission at Hope House is to provide a home-like, family atmosphere where, through love, structured activities, appropriate discipline, educational and vocational opportunities, and people who will listen, young people can reach their fullest potential.

2019 TOP HAT Lincoln Day Donations

The 2019 designated "Pass-the-Hat" donations this year went to BRAVE HEARTS IDAHO to benefit warriors with special financial needs.   At the Banquet, our generous attendees donated $2,973 (the highest donation amount at the banquet, so far) to our Military warriors in need.  See www.BraveHeartsIdaho.Org


This Lincoln Day tradition to pass around Abe's Hat for donations has supported the Ada County Lincoln Day Association & special designated Worthy Causes.  Your Donations to Lincoln Day help us continue to celebrate the memory and legacy and the Principles of Abraham Lincoln, year in and year out, with inspiring speakers and fine cuisine.
