Fundraising Events

Fundraising events are a great way to get involved with Hope Haven. Community participation helps to raise funds, and provides an important opportunity for fellowship with other supporters. Join us at an event or connect with a planning committee by reaching out to Brenda or Scott (contact information below). All proceeds from these events benefit Hope Haven are a fun way to give back!
