Miracle of Innocence 6th Annual Fundraiser Gala

Miracle of Innocence is dedicated to freeing the wrongly convicted and providing care for the exonerated upon their return home. We cordially invite you to attend our annual fundraiser, the sole event of the year. Without your participation, thousands of innocent individuals will never get their second chance at freedom. Registering to attend will show your support for the ongoing mission.
