ISOH/IMPACT has announce the 2013 Hope Gala will be hosted and sponsored by the Hilton Garden Inn at Levis Commons on Feb. 28.
This event is a benefit to build the International Hope Center and will begin at 6 p.m. with a reception and a silent auction, followed by the program beginning at 7. Local celebrity and WTVG 13 ABC anchorman Jeff Smith will emcee the event, with special music provided by harpist Joy Campbell.
Individual tickets are $50.
The goal of this year's gala is to raise the funds needed to build the International Hope Center on ISOH/IMPACT's acreage on South Wilkinson Way in Levis Commons by matching the grant provided by The Diehl Family Foundation. The new 15,282 square foot facility will double the capacity of the current warehouse in Waterville, and will serve as the only dedicated distribution center for disaster relief aid in this community.
A spacious sorting area, a more efficient warehouse space with loading docks, ample parking, medical services, offices and meeting rooms will create a hub where the community can gather, sort and pack supplies, train for upcoming missions, and distribute aid all from one convenient location.
The center will serve as a model for similar centers around the world.
ISOH/IMPACT has been serving this community and the world for more than five decades. Since 2004, they have provided more than $60 million in food, clothing, medical supplies and other assistance to disaster victims and impoverished families locally, nationally, and internationally with one goal in mind: to Reach Out & Serve Others by easing the suffering of children and their families right here at home and around the world.
ISOH/IMPACT has a distinguished track record in successful outcomes and practices and is recognized as an organization that does not waste resources.
