Celebrate Neighborhoods at Opening Doors 2022!

A collection of blocks and rectangles in shades of purple and beige, some with texture of city aerial views. The center block reads "Save the Date, Opening Doors, Lincoln Children's Zoo, September 22, 2022 at 4pm."

Our Ninth-Annual Opening Doors benefit will take place at the Lincoln Children's Zoo on Thursday, September 22nd.

Join us under the tent for a celebration of neighbors and neighborhoods - you might even see an animal or two! Doors open at 4:00 pm, with the program starting at 5:00 pm. Tickets are required for entry and may be purchased HERE.

At Opening Doors 2022, we will celebrate the honorees of the Spirit of Lincoln Neighborhood Awards. The nomination deadline for the award program has been extended to August 19th!

The Spirit of Lincoln Neighborhood Awards recognize those in our community committed to creating strong, affordable neighborhoods. Since 1986, NWL has worked with countless neighborhood champions, civic leaders, and public organizations in selfless service to thousands of low- and moderate-income families throughout Lincoln. This awards program honors the indomitable spirit of that work.

Nominate a neighbor, colleague, group, or institution making a substantial commitment to advancing affordable housing and strengthening neighborhoods.

Nominations are due Friday, August 19th!
