On Cloud Nine 2022
Cancelled for this Year

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 surge, the safest course of action at this time has been to cancel On Cloud Nine for 2022. 

Though we can’t be together to celebrate the legacy and impact of this event, Horizons for Youth continues our daily work to provide meaningful resources to students and families.

In response to this news, our lead sponsor has agreed to keep their gift in place and match all event donations up to $50,000. 

With this generous offer in place, we hope you will still consider participating by making a donation supporting the critical programs On Cloud Nine usually funds.

We are incredibly grateful to the Barnett Family, the On Cloud Nine Planning Committee, and to our generous event sponsors who continue to uplift the importance of this annual event.

Sponsor the Event

On Cloud Nine has raised over $6.1MM over 21 years, enabling Horizons for Youth to grow from 42 students in 2000 to 216 students, kindergarten through college, today.

This event has been a resounding success thanks to the generosity of our donors. We ask you to consider joining our efforts by becoming a sponsor of the 22nd annual On Cloud Nine.

Event’s History

On Cloud Nine was founded in 2001 to honor the memory of Paige Barnett, who passed away at the age of 18 months on February 2, 2000. The event, established by Paige’s parents, Kent Barnett and Lauren Heath, supports the children of Horizons for Youth. On Cloud Nine also now pays tribute to Lauren Heath, who passed away in July of 2015, after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

Our work would not be possible without our generous supporters. To donate to Horizons for Youth and keep the legacy of Lauren and Paige alive, please visit our donate page below.
