HOPE South Florida hosts second annual ‘TasteHOPE Warehouse Gala’
HOPE South Florida (HSF) will turn an empty warehouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale’s FAT Village art district into an interactive art display of its programs and services for the second annual “TasteHOPE Warehouse Gala.”
“Our ‘TasteHOPE Warehouse Gala’ is a night to share our story of HOPE with you,” said Robin Martin, executive director. “We want you to know who we are, how we help, and why we do it.”
Serving thousands of homeless families, children and individuals since 1995, (formerly The Shepherd’s Way) HSF reflects the growing movement of bringing the faith, business and neighborhood community’s together to provide tangible solutions for Broward County’s homeless problem. In 2012, 192 families with 403 children received housing and support services through HOPE South Florida’s LiveHOPE programs, with the continued expansion of crisis and transitional housing solutions.
For the second year, HOPE South Florida will transform an empty warehouse with program displays, food stations by Catering Concepts and Concessions, live music, art installations and a silent auction featuring local photography.
“Come and learn how people like you are building hope for more than 4,000 men, women and children, who find themselves homeless in our community through our Live, Taste, Teach and Shop HOPE initiatives,” added Martin. “Join us as we share a meal and showcase our programs, while helping us meet our goal of raising $100,000 in benefit of those we serve.”
The attire is business casual and there are no reserved seating arrangements. Instead, guests are encouraged to use the evening to experience HOPE South Florida and help build community with other supporters.
Tickets are $50 per person – or a group rate (of 10 persons or more) for $45 each – with sponsorships ranging from $500 to $10,000. This year’s presenting sponsors include Landmark Bank, The Fairwinds Group and Q’Staint. Tickets, sponsorships and more details can be found at www.hopesouthflorida.org or by calling 954-566-2311.
