THIRD ANNUAL HOPE BALL RAISES $243,000 FOR LOCAL FOSTER CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS

 

Palm Beach/Palm Beach Gardens – February 2009 – Hope sprung eternal as Place of Hope and Villages of Hope raised $243,000 at its Third Annual Hope Ball, held February 6, 2009 at The Breakers in Palm Beach.

The funds benefit the operating expenses of both Place of Hope and Villages of Hope to help serve more foster children and their siblings from Palm Beach County. The gala event was co-chaired by Cheri Martin and Alex DeLange and welcomed among its almost 300 guests Florida Senate President Jeff Atwater and U.S. Congressman Tom Rooney.

“The 2009 Hope Ball was a beautiful evening of celebration for the lives of children who are in need, and we are extremely grateful to those who gave so generously on behalf of these children. It was wonderful to see so many open their hearts and embrace the cause,” said Martin.

Place of Hope, one of the largest family-style child welfare organizations in Florida, provides emergency and long-term family-style foster care, family outreach and intervention, transitional housing and support services, adoption and foster care recruitment and support, and hope and healing opportunities for children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect.

Villages of Hope provides independent living residential support and life-skills development for emancipated foster and other homeless youth. More than just a place to live, it also provides a supportive and proactive transitional environment. Both organizations are located in Palm Beach Gardens.

“The Hope Ball is an opportunity to show everyone the ‘heart of Place of Hope,’ which is the care and strength that is given to the children every day,” said DeLange. “Cheri Martin and I wanted our guests to understand just how imperative and important their support is to these lives that have been so damaged and hurt. And I think the heart really showed through that evening because everyone found a way to give even in these uncertain times.”

Evening highlights included performances by youth orchestra Fiddleworks of Deerfield Beach, a stellar live auction bid of $10,000 for a Napa Valley trip by Chuck and Jane Beth Wall, and a silent auction featuring 170 items.

Special thanks go to Hope Ball Family Sponsors Gordon and Cheri Martin and the Martin and Parr families; Faith Sponsor The Albert E. and Birdie W. Einstein Fund; Love Sponsor Christ Fellowship Church; Grace Sponsors The Lawrence and Florence DeGeorge Charitable Trust, Chad LaBonte and Erin Rossitto, Kathleen Speh and family; Table Sponsors Calibre; Cameron, Davis & Gonzalez, P.A., Attorneys at Law; Christopher and Deana Cerniglia; Richard and Kathy Cullifer; Dr. Greg and Mrs. Alex DeLange; Chuck and Sheilagh Hardwick; David and Gail Hess; Dr. & Mrs. Mark Kuhl; Joy and Mike Miltenberger; Mickey and Brenda Nocera; Palm Beach Motor Cars; Maudie Pande, in memory of Lawrence A.
