This year’s annual fundraising dinner and auction, the Sonshine Hope Gala, took place on October 23 at the Carriage House Inn. With a “Love Boat” inspired theme to the evening, the evening featured a zany sea captain guiding the evening, and guests dressed in their finest sea-worthy garb, from swash buckling pirates to relaxed cruise-goers. Throughout the evening, guest had the opportunity to contribute to Sonshine and win fantastic items through a raffle draw, silent auction and live auction.
After factoring in event costs, Sonshine raised $90,000 for it’s work helping women and children transform their lives! We couldn’t have done it without our faithful attendees and sponsors. Thank you to Investors Group for your lead contribution, as well as to Conoco Phillips and MEG Energy. We’d also like to thank the Carriage House Inn for sponsoring the appetizers, and for their amazing staff for treating us so well!
Next year’s Hope Gala will take place Friday, October 28 at the Carriage House Inn. Make sure you find out when next year’s tickets go on sale by signing up for our newsletter!
