Keynote speaker and BHGH alumnus, Larry Philips, underscored for those at our 19th Annual Evening of Hope how vital our continued investment in the lives of promising young people is to our community. On a night celebrating the potential of our scholars and the generous individuals committed to seeing it realized, the message he delivered about his own story and the many still waiting for opportunity was both encoring and galvanizing.
We were thrilled to welcome new and old friends of Boys Hope Girls Hope to hear from Larry and our honorees, John & Joan Vatterott and David Farr. Our Residential and Hope Prep scholars and staff served as wonderful ambassadors for our programs, assisting with activities for the evening and putting faces to the vision that was shared.
Thank you to event chairwoman, Lisa Flavin, and all those who worked behind the scenes and throughout the night to make Evening of Hope possible! We are incredibly grateful to you and to all of the attendees who gave over $400,000 towards the realization of our collective hopes for the scholars and plans for the future!
