Thank you for to everyone who joined us for Hopelink’s 8th annual Farm Fresh Feast! The hybrid event was a first for us, and we hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
We raised more than $191,000 to help ensure that Hopelink continues to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
Looking ahead, we are so excited about Hopelink’s 26th annual Reaching Out Virtual Luncheon on October 18, and we can’t wait to share the afternoon with you! Register here to join Dr. Catherine Cushinberry and Hasan Minhaj for a discussion you won’t want to miss!
