Feather the Nest is organized by Marvin Daniel, President of KDW Home, and co-chaired by Michael Berlucchi and Cole Werkheiser. The event is much like a bridal or baby shower with a goal of collecting donations of home furnishings and gift cards which are made available to the people Hope House supports. The purpose of this event is to ensure that individuals have the means to make their house a home, and for individuals coming into Hope House services with a little or nothing, have funds/items/gift cards to furnish their home.

Here is how the event operates! In lieu of a ticket price, all we ask is that invitees bring a home furnishing item or a gift card to the event. At the event, attendees will be able to enjoy an evening of live music, delicious food donated by local restaurants, and an open bar provided by event sponsors. Guests also get the privilege of meeting some of the people we support and their families.

This is an invitation only event. However, if you would like to donate to the efforts or become a part of this group effort that truly inspires and influences the lives of the people Hope House supports, please feel free to contact us!
