2018 Celebration of Hope Raises Over $170,000

The 2018 celebration of Hope Gala at the Ballantyne Hotel may have been the best ever! During the donation portion alone over $70,000 was raised by the enthusiastic attendees. The gala was again hosted by former Carolina Panthers All Pro Offensive Lineman Keven Donnalley and the live auction was led by legendary Charlotte Jeweler and Auctioneer Ernest Perry of Perry’s Jewelers.

The night was also special because of the announcement of the movie Hope’s Wish finally being produced right here in Charlotte. It was also the Birthday of co-founder Stuart Stout, which led to a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday. (See event photos)
