We put on a pretty awesome event every year, something that we at HOPE are very proud of. Great volleyball games, sun, sand, great food options and loads of entertainment both via the HOT Lounge & the HOPE Mainstage. We don’t just do this for fun (but that happens while we do it!) but to give back to our charities that will benefit from the proceeds of July 11th 2020!
Our year culminates in a evening we call “Celebration of HOPE” and it’s when our Planning Team, sponsors, and charities gather to celebrate our event year. We give out the funding to the Recipient Charities and announce our upcoming year’s Recipient Charities. It’s a very special evening for all of us and please enjoy some of the photos of that November 22nd 2018 evening below:
