The largest fundraising event for HopeWest in Delta is sold out with more than 300 people expected to attend the annual gala on Saturday, Aug. 19, at the Bill Heddles Recreation Center.
The "Hope Blooms" themed gala will begin at 6 p.m. with a silent auction that includes one-of-a-kind auction items, such as a private dinner for 20 with national singing sensation Jeneve Rose Mitchell, two Nigerian Dwarf goats and a Hawaiian getaway. The evening will continue with dinner and dancing.
"We are so grateful for the generosity of the Delta community," said Nancy Hovde, development coordinator at HopeWest in Delta. "This event is an opportunity for us to remind our donors, volunteers and supporters of the difference they make in the lives of our patients and families."
All proceeds will support HopeWest in Delta and our mission of profoundly changing the way our community experiences aging, serious illness and grief -- one family at a time.
