the sweet taste of Hope

As I’ve mentioned before, Fall is a very busy time of year for weddings/events.  Our state bleeds Carolina-blue skies all season long and we are lucky enough to enjoy beautiful fall weather.  So this means lots going on!!  This also means, I can get a behind with “housekeeping” and I’m loooong overdue for a blog post.  =) 
Premier was blessed with the opportunity to help plan the Annual Benefit Dinner for House of Hope.  I cannot tell you how excited I was to work on this event – the venue, the ´╗┐caterer, and of course the folks at House of Hope.  You all were a pleasure to work with and I hope there are many more endeavors together. 
A special “thanks” to Dan Hacker Photography for the lovely photos that captured the event:
All the jars had cute little tags on them.  <3
never actually tried taking candy from a baby, but I’m sure it isn’t easy!

A special “Thank You” to the staff at Marbles Kids Museum – you guys did an excellent job with everything!  Set-up, A/V, breakdown, etc.  Premier cannot wait to work with you again!

Our tables were decorated by the very talented Krystl Newton.  She was so generous with her time and creativity.  Thank you Krystl for making the event stand out!

Look at all that delicious food!!  Cafe Luna did an amazing job catering for 200 people!

Towards the end of the evening, House of Hope had guests stand up and give their “cardboard testimony”.  This was one of the best parts – being able to hear actual stories from individuals who’s life was directly impacted and changed for the better.  All because of House of Hope and financial donations.
Thank you again to all the vendors and volunteers who came together to make the night as special as it was.  It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that this Benefit Dinner had the most donations since HOH started hosting the event!  Thank you to all who made financial donations!  You are truely making an impact to young girls in need.
Since House of Hope is a Christian non-profit organization, they depend solely on the generosity of the surrounding community.  If you are interested in volunteering or donating to House of Hope, or want to learning more about what the organization does, please visit their website for more information.
