5:30pm - VIP Pre-event Reception (Club House)
6:30pm - Main Celebration & Awards (Bake House)
Join House of Hope CDC for its 30th Anniversary: Celebration of Hope on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at the Squantum Association in East Providence, RI. This one-time, festive fundraiser will honor the historical and present day successes and people of the organization as it continues its mission to prevent and end homelessness in the state and end the personal and social trauma of homelessness. Through the creation of affordable housing and other progressive programs, House of Hope delivers life-changing services and advocacy to ensure everyone can have a safe, stable home.
The night will begin with an exclusive pre-event reception at 5:30pm that will delight VIP guests with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails overlooking Narragansett Bay. This reception will feature a can’t-miss performance by local storytelling legend, Len Cabral and music by Julio Amaro.
At the Celebration,
immediately following at 6:30pm, guests will join Emcee Barbara Morse Silva for an evening of delicious cuisine and camaraderie
paired with an open
bar of beer and wine donated by Thorpe’s Wine & Spirits.
Three awards will be presented to the following
recipients for their outstanding support:
Team Williams - Game Changer Award
Carol Rooney - Pioneer Award
Dr. Craig Kaufmann, Catherine May, FNP, and Rahul Vanjani, MD – Heart of Hope Award
All guests will have the unique opportunity to tour Shower to Empower, an innovative mobile unit which provides complimentary showers to Rhode Islanders experiencing homelessness as well as case management, medical navigation services, haircuts, and other assistance to help restore dignity to those in need. This unit is just one example of House of Hope’s progressive programs serving over 1,273 individuals experiencing homelessness in 2018 statewide.
Squantum Association has selected House of Hope as a recipient of Squantum Serves, an initiative to provide at-cost services for community organizations in an effort to improve the quality of life in our state. This amazing program enables more dollars from the Celebration to go directly to those in need.
The Celebration of Hope will help raise necessary funds as House of Hope brings its effective, life changing programs to those experiencing homelessness in Rhode Island.
