Hops From Home 2020

We are reaching out to ask for your consideration in hosting “Hops from Home”! Hops from Home is essentially a smaller version of Hops 4 Hope, giving your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues an opportunity to learn more about Hope House and have fun while doing it!

The goal of hosting this event is to keep our cherished fundraiser “Hops 4 Hope” alive in a more intimate environment. We hope that you can provide us with a platform to share our mission and potentially raise money for a cause we believe is amazing.

Below, you will find some suggestions for creating your very own House Party! Of course, we are always available to help make sure your event is a success. Please contact the Hope House at any point if you have any questions. 

Signing up to become a host is simple. Just fill out the form below!

Why have a House Party?

  • This House Party will continue to brand our most cherished fundraiser.
  • Your party will help Hope House raise awareness of our organization’s mission, and identify new potential donors.
  • It could also help us recruit potential volunteers for various needs.

 

Resources

  • You!  You are your own best resource. You’ve probably had at least one gathering at your house before (a BBQ, watching the game, birthdays) and hosting a House Party isn’t much different.
  • The Team. We are here to help you make this a successful House Party. We can help provide organizational material, logistics, and agendas.
  • Your address book, member organization lists, church directory, holiday card lists, e-mail lists, etc. Names, e-mails, addresses and phone numbers that you have for your friends, neighbors, colleagues and family.
