Celebrating HOPE 40th Anniversary

This year’s theme is “HOPE is a jewel!”

About The Dinner

It promises to be an evening filled with laughter, fun, enchantment, and friendship.  The proceeds from the dinner go a long way to help HOPE provide our core services (one-on-one counseling, 12 monthly support groups, and our monthly newsletter) at no cost to the bereaved.  It also helps HOPE to meet our daily operating expenses.

The Evening Includes:

  • A beautiful reception
  • A Silent Auction filled with some many wonderful baskets, many donated in memory of a loved one, memorabilia items and trips.
  • A Live Auction
  • Photo booth
  • Magician
  • Raffles.

What We’re Celebrating:

  • It is an opportunity to celebrate the life of our loved ones who have died.
  • It is a celebration of  40 years that HOPE has been helping grieving children & adults in our community and beyond.
  • It is a celebration that grief has softened for thousands of bereaved and they can appreciate life and the people in their life.


Sponsorship and Table Host opportunities are available. More details to come.
