Non-profits must fundraise to meet their budgets. HOPE is no different. We offer all of our services at no cost to our patients and provide roughly $550,000 worth of services every single year for men and women in this community.
Fundraising, however, is simply a vehicle. It is not our end goal or motivation. Instead, we are motivated daily by the needs of this community and the men and women that find themselves in a crisis situation.
We saw this vehicle in drive yesterday as we were joined by 60 plus individuals at Gettysvue Polo, Golf and Country Club for our 11th Annual HOPE Challenge Golf Tournament. This tournament gives us a chance every year to partner with businesses, churches, and individuals to highlight and fund the work of HOPE.
These participants lock arms with our organization to stand for moms, dads, babies, and families in need. The Lord has done some amazing work over the years through this tournament and those that participate.
This year was no different as we were able to top all previous tournaments and raise just over $60,000!
This number represents ultrasounds, pregnancy tests, STD testing and treatments, parenting classes, and baby showers for those in need. It represents love for your neighbor and a desire to stand with the vulnerable.
Yesterday was a great day, but the focus is not on the vehicle used. It was a great day because funds were raised and provided to assure that the patients that find themselves at HOPE will be provided the care they need.
I want to take this time to thank you for standing with us. Thank you for praying, for giving, and for loving. We could not do this work without you.
