HopeLink and 300+ friends, community partners, donors, employees, and former clients celebrated 30 years of preventing homelessness, preserving families, and providing hope to Southern Nevada at The M Resort.
The evening was a spectacular affair with live entertainment by Chicks Who Rock and the Franky Perez Band, a silent and live auction, and recognition of five Heroes of Hope, Janet Miller (philanthropist), The Gene Haas Foundation, The City of Henderson, Canyon Ridge Christian Church, and the Crossing Church.
Thank you to all who were able to join us, and to all of our amazing sponsors who helped make the evening possible; in particular our lead event sponsors, The M Resort, Siegel Group, Everox, Las Vegas Party Rentals, Toyota Financial, Candid Worldwide, and Blueprint Studios.
An evening of this magnitude doesn't just happen, my appreciation goes out to all of the volunteers who spent countless hours planning every aspect of the evening, our table sponsors, our Emcee and Auctioneer, our audio/visual and technical teams, and many more.
We also unveiled our special project - our Stories of Hope coffee table book, featuring 30 inspirational stories of Hope! The project took a little more than a year to complete and we are excited to share it with you. Watch for more about it in a separate email coming next week and we'll let you know how you can get your very own copy!
As this anniversary year nears the end, I can't express my gratitude and appreciation to everyone for all you've done to help us reach this milestone.
From former board members who helped create and launch HopeLink those many years ago to those who serve on our BOD today, our community partners who have stood by us, hand in hand for so many years, and our long-time loyal and new donors and friends.
And, I can't leave out our staff who do good work, day in and day out! Their passion for helping others is like nothing I have ever experienced before. This team of 40+ professionals is the most amazing team I have ever had the pleasure of working alongside.
You are all Heroes of Hope; you help us to keep roofs over heads, food on tables, lights on, house those who have fallen on hard times, and so much more!
Together, we help our clients - members of our community, gain self-sufficiency and become financially stable once again.
And most importantly, bring HOPE to those who need it most.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
CEO, HopeLink of Southern Nevada
