Night of Hope Gala
Hope Women’s Center (HWC) invites the community to a formal evening of silent and live auctions, dinner and drinks, on Sept 18 at the Phoenix Art Museum.
The Night of Hope gala is Hope Women’s Center’s largest annual fundraiser and all proceeds go toward their mission of encouraging, engaging, and equipping women and teen girls in crisis, poverty, and abuse.
Local group, Urban Electra, will provide the evening’s musical entertainment. Silent auction baskets will offer the best of area restaurants, art, and leisure. Large ticket items, like a puppy, exquisite trips, and coveted getaways, will be auctioned live after dinner.
During the 2 months of COVID closures, HWC distributed food and essential items to women and their families, providing over 49,000 meals, services, and programs to more than 1,100 women by the end of 2020. They launched a crisis counseling program to address the mental health decline they saw in their clients and they launched a job skills training program to better support the economic needs of their clients. They also opened their Maricopa center a month before the year ended. All this in addition to the free services they’ve offered Arizona women since 1984, services such as mentoring, life skills classes, support groups, pregnancy services, and parenting classes.
Tickets or tables are available for purchase at www.hopewomenscenter.org/news-events. All event proceeds will go directly to the programs and services HWC offers women at their six centers in the underserved communities of Phoenix, Apache Junction, Coolidge, West Valley, Maricopa, and Camp Verde.
