It’s going to look different – but we’ll pull it off!

Our Celebrating Hope Luau is going to be outdoors! 

Grant Me Hope’s board and staff would be delighted if you joined them for an evening of Celebrating Hope, a dinner-auction event to be held from 6 to 9 p.m. June 17, 2021 at 930 Interchange Drive, Holland, MI 49423.

Celebrating Hope is a magical evening enjoying the finest food, perusing great auction items, and the entertainment will give you lots of laughs and tears as you learn about the children in your own backyard. This year, we’re spicing it up Hawaiian style with a warm, colorful luau theme!

VIDEO: At 2019’s Celebrating Hope, Grant Me Hope brought Jay and Christie Deshaw to speak about the Grant Me Hope video that changed their lives and the life of their adopted son Kyron. The couple spoke about receiving Kyron’s Grant Me Hope video in an email from a friend who had seen it on WXYZ, channel 7, in Detroit. The friend knew Jay and Christie would be able to communicate with Kyron using American Sign Language. He was adopted just days before his 18th birthday. Their story was powerful and moving!

Organizers are working to ensure this year’s program is just as powerful!

There are a variety of ways to support Grant Me Hope’s mission through this event, including the donation of an auction item, a sponsorship, attending and volunteering. Request further information by emailing or call Founder Helen Zeerip at 616-836-7949, GMH  Development Director Lynn Yntema at 616-581-8582, GMH Communications Director Netty Manwell at 906-285-2133. Any of us would happy to discuss Celebrating Hope.

We might have changed the theme a bit, but the evening is sure to be as lovely as last year’s evening. See our Facebook page for a photo album of Celebrating Hope 2019, held April 18, it was a fantastic success!
