The Evening of Hope is our annual gala event, an occasion for celebration and a time to shine a light on mental health. Held at the gorgeous Pavilion at the Angus Barn, the evening includes a delicious meal with wine pairings, live and silent auctions and a celebrity keynote speaker.
2020 Keynote Speaker LeAnn Rimes
In 2020, we are thrilled to welcome Grammy-award-winning singer, actress, and mental health advocate LeAnn Rimes as our keynote speaker. Ms. Rimes is known throughout the international music community for her hits, including “How Do I Live” and “Can’t Fight the Moonlight.” Ms. Rimes is an outspoken mental health advocate open about her struggles with anxiety and depression.

The 32nd Annual Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope
walk • run • festival
Sunday, October 11, 2020
Race for Steak: 9 a.m. • Walk for Hope: 10 a.m. • Festival: 10:30 a.m.
The Thad & Alice Eure Walk for Hope is one of the nation’s largest and oldest fundraisers benefiting mental illness research and treatment. There are two options for Walk participants: a 5K and a 1-mile Nature Hike around the Angus Barn Lake.
The Race for Steak is a USA Track & Field Certified 5K Run (NC091116NW) held on the same day – so you can run AND walk if you want!
And all day long, we’re hosting a family-friendly festival with music, games, face-painting, balloon art, bounce houses, a petting zoo, yummy desserts, pony rides, and more!
And the best part is: you don’t have to join the walk to participate. Purchase a festival-only armband and come out any time to enjoy the day.
