Come one, come all!

House of Hope invites you to step into the magical world of color, motion, and breathtaking feats of agility on February 18, 2023 at Cirque du Soirée presented by the Pedersen Family Foundation.

Acrobats, jugglers, and the astonishing artistry of the Lollipop Lyra will add to the excitement at this first annual House of Hope gala in support of the nonprofit’s mission to empower Martin County residents to overcome hunger and hardship. “We like people to have fun while they’re helping us with our important work of caring for friends and neighbors in need,” said House of Hope CEO Rob Ranieri. “Our gala committee has outdone themselves in creating an evening that will astonish our guests. It’s guaranteed to be jaw dropping.” Cocktails on the patio, an open bar, a plated dinner, a live auction, and dancing with DJ Todd will all complement the festivities at Willoughby Golf Club from 6 to 10 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will support House of Hope's Project HOPE (“Help Others Progress through Empowerment”). This outreach program provides services directly to clients, including individual case management, enrichment opportunities, financial assistance through a crisis, support through the job-searching process, and the distribution of healthy foods to clients and the community.

Tickets are available at $250 per person but seating is limited, so House of Hope supporters are urged to book early. Attire is elegant cocktail.
