Igniting Hope & Evening of Hope

Pavilion at the Angus Barn

We are thrilled to announce our rescheduled dates for the two Expanding Hope events!

On Wednesday, February 9th, our elegant Evening of Hope Gala, featuring Grammy award-winning singer, actress, and mental health advocate LeAnn Rimes will take place! Then on Thursday, February 10 will be the inaugural Igniting Hope – a night of dinner and dancing with Band of Oz showcasing the best of NC and all its Carolina Charm.

Both events at the gorgeous Pavilion at the Angus Barn will still include silent and live auctions with fabulous getaways, wine, and exquisite home decor, special raffle prizes, and exceptional food and wine pairings. Seating will be limited to ensure intimate and incomparable experiences for all our guests.

The work of the Foundation of Hope would not be possible without the generous support of our local and national sponsors. Because of our generous sponsors, all of the Walk for Hope expenses are underwritten, allowing 100% of participant dollars to go directly to research funding.
