We’d be pleased if you joined us for this special event!

Plan to spend an evening with us enjoying an expansive menu of delicious food, a fabulous auction and moving stories about foster care, while learning about our mission and why we are so passionate about what we do.

“Celebrating Hope,” a dinner-auction event, will be held from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, March 29 at English Hills Country Club, 1200 4 Mile Road NW, Grand Rapids.

Tickets for this event are $50 per person, $90 per couple and $450 for a table a 10.


The event will include a raffle drawing  for a fabulous weekend getaway in the Holland/Zeeland area!

The winner of this raffle will enjoy a two night stay for a two at the exquisite Baert Baron Mansion situated just a few city blocks from quaint, downtown Zeeland. The raffle winner will enjoy dinner at Salt & Pepper one night and Butch’s Dry Dock in picturesque Downtown Holland the next. Finally, our winner will receive two pedicures from Body Perfection. This prize is valued at more than $600. (The fine print: The two night stay cannot be redeemed during Tulip Time or on any holiday weekend).

Tickets for this fabulous weekend getaway raffle are $5 each or five (5) for $20 and are available at our offices inside Teddy’s Transport at 930 Interchange Dr. Holland, MI. Email info@grantmehope.org for further purchasing options and locations. Raffle tickets cannot be sold online.

The winner does not have to attend the event to win and will be notified by phone if not claimed at the event.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Fill out the commitment form and return to Grant Me Hope. We sincerely appreciate your consideration.
