Each year in June, the Hope House Board of Directors hosts an Annual Dinner to honor the staff, people we support, board members, and community members that have helped make the year a success.

The evening includes hors d'œuvres, dinner, and a cash bar. Awards are presented during dinner, followed by lots of dancing to complete the celebration. This is a definite don’t-miss event.

Our 40th Annual Dinner will be held on June 28, 2018 at the Norfolk Mariott Waterside. Sponsorship's are available at levels ranging from $100 to $2,500+, or you can sponsor a meal for someone we support for $40.

To request an invitation or RSVP please contact Laura Janosko at 757.625.6161, x509 or email her.
