EVENING OF HOPE
2021 Gala planning underway
We were incredibly saddened that we could not hold our 2020 Evening Of Hope gala due to COVID-19. Our priority has always been to ensure the health and well-being of our friends and supporters, and as we couldn’t gather safely and comfortably last fall, we felt it was best to cancel our event.
We are however exploring reimagined visions for the event this year, with in-person, virtual, and hybrid options as potential alternatives, and will be updating this page soon with more information. We are also working to reschedule Grammy-award winning singer and actress LeAnn Rimes as our guest speaker for 2021, so stay tuned for details.
An annual charity dinner and auction benefiting The Foundation of Hope, the Evening of Hope takes place at the resplendent Pavilion at the Angus Barn in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event features an elegant five-course dinner—served with exceptional wine pairings—prepared by Iron Chef Walter Royal, as well as a live auction, a silent auction and a celebrity keynote speaker.
