The HOPE Gala is our annual fundraising event that celebrates our mission to “SERVE DIFFERENT” by transforming the lives of children in need by helping them grow, learn, and cultivate a better future and an eternal HOPE.

This year’s HOPE Gala will be held on Sunday, December 17th at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA from 6 – 9:30 PM. This event is HOPE’s premier fundraising opportunity that highlights the amazing work of our corporate and program partners, generous donors, and dedicated staff and volunteers. This year’s event will be focused on and in celebration of the successful launch and operation of the HOPE Mobile Health Clinic and its Healthy and Ready to Learn Initiative for children all across the DC area.

The Healthy and Ready to Learn Initiative is designed to break down the walls between health care and education by identifying and addressing health problems at school. It focuses on eight key health barriers to learning—uncontrolled asthma, fatigue, vision loss, hearing loss, social stress, hunger, behavioral problems, and dental pain—that keep kids from succeeding.

Through this event, HOPE will be able to raise funds for the continued operation of the mobile unit to be used for the program, purchase equipment for screenings and health tests, and provide program support and ongoing human resources for the implementation of the initiative.

Guests will enjoy an evening of gourmet food and wine, live entertainment, keynote speeches from prominent guests, and much more. With so much to celebrate and more to look forward to, we’re certain this event will be a special night for all.
