Evening of Hope Update by Lesley Doan

It's hard to believe our big fundraiser dinner, Evening of Hope, is right around the corner! This year we would like to invite you to RSVP using our website (www.tiqvah.org/events). An exciting twist; your RSVP is free! Dinner will be provided through private sponsorship of each table. As usual, there will be opportunities for you to contribute financially to the mission of Tiqvah throughout the evening. 

We realize many of our readers are long time friends of our program. You may read the above information and feel compelled to take your next steps into your support of our program. There are two great ways for you to get involved. The first would be the role of table sponsor, someone who contributes $300 so that the meal is covered for each guest at the table. Another role to step into would be table host. This person commits to filling a table of seven guests through inviting friends, neighbors, co workers, or family. The key to being a table host is finding folks who may not know about us but would like to know more about our mission. 

Our goal this year at our event is to fill the room. We would love to have 200 people in attendance. If you are unfamiliar with Tiqvah but want to learn more, I encourage you to come out, hear about the safety, success, and hope our students experience because of Tiqvah. If you are already a supporter, I encourage you to take your next step. You could invite a friend to join you or become a private table sponsor or host. 

This year's speaking line up is one that you will not want to miss. Joining us at the microphone that evening will be Canton City Police Officer and founder of Be a Better Me Foundation, Lamar Sharpe. You will also hear from a Tiqvah "graduate" and volunteer, Rosie Jones. And of course you will get to see the smiling faces of our Tiqvah students. They are already working on their performances. You won't want to miss this year's incredible event!
