 HOPE was lucky enough to participate in three special events over this past year. In March, HOPE was selected as the recipient of the Del Amo Rotary Club’s “An Evening of Comedy and Charity” at the Hermosa Beach Comedy Club.  The event raised nearly $20,000 and featured dinner, well-known comics, and a live and silent auction.

In August, HOPE benefited from the efforts of two events sponsored by friends of HOPE. Harbor Regional Center held a Tupperware party, which raised over $1,000, and The Gina M. Woodruff Gallery held an Art and Silent auction evening event, which raised over $5,000.

Thanks to a matching grant from the Del Harbor Foundation of $20,000, these events helped HOPE to complete the repairs at our Crenshaw duplex including new carpet, paint, garages, air conditioning, fencing and landscaping.
