It’s time for the 2022 H.O.P.E. Campaign!

A message from our family and partners at the H.O.P.E. Campaign – 

Hello all! This coming March marks the 11th anniversary of Dad’s passing, and 11 years that our amazing community has pulled together to help us with our mission of benefiting others who are battling cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. We are truly humbled and blessed, and we cannot thank you enough. We’re excited to announce this year’s fish fry has been scheduled for Friday, April 29 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Bloomfield. Please help us spread the word!

Thank you so much for your support!  Lora, Kyle and families

This is our small way of giving back! We celebrate H.O.P.E. ~ Healing, Optimism, Prayer and Example.
