Due to COVID , we moved the in-person portion of our Hope Gala to August 14, 2021. We thank everyone who participated in the on-line auction and 50/50 Raffle in January – we hope you had fun, and the great trips whetted your appetites for more! If you have any questions, please contact us at AshtonHopeKeeganFoundation@gmail.com
To our Sponsors, Friends, Volunteers, and Community,
The 4th Annual Hope Gala for the Ashton Hope Keegan Foundation is now planned for August 14th, 2021. As is fitting for these COVID-driven times, our theme will be a “Mask”querade Ball!
Entertainment will be featuring The Ashley Rivera Duo with Gary Stone, she is the lead singer of the Southern acoustic rock band Sister Moon. Click on the link for a teaser of the great sounds we will have at the “Mask”querade Ball https://youtu.be/mmCZAP6I4LQ
Note that, as of this time, the CDC and Athens government guidelines still limit us to only 100 people in the room (including volunteers), but with the vaccination rates rising, we will be coordinating with them to ensure we get the latest guidelines. As it currently stands, the event will be scaled back significantly and include a sit-down dinner rather than our traditional heavy hors d’oeuvres. We are also contingency planning in case the restrictions are either lessened (fingers crossed), or the event has to be delayed again…
Thank you for your continued interest in Ashton’s Foundation and our mission to help women who have been left behind to join the economic mainstream. Although the women we serve today are struggling for subsistence, our goal is that they and their children will soon strive for their dreams.
In the meantime, please enjoy some photos from the 2020 Hope Gala! See you soon!
