This contribution ensures that even as we gather for one day to celebrate and enjoy; we will also leave a lasting legacy on the future and well being of Hope. Over the past seven years, over $30,000 has been contributed from this event. If you are interested in being a corporate underwriter for the golf outing, please contact Mark DeWitt, Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations, at
