Operation Hope of Fairfield will host its 16th annual Evening of Hope on Thursday, May 4, from 6-10 p.m., at the recently re-opened Penfield Pavilion at Penfield Beach, 323 Fairfield Beach Road, Fairfield. The Aloha themed gala event will raise funds to break the cycle of poverty by feeding, sheltering and counseling those in the community who are most in need. The festivities will include tropical-inspired cuisine, live music from the Roylety Steel Pan Band, Community Hero awards, silent and live auctions and more.
“This event is our biggest fund-raiser of the year and gives our guests the chance to make a real difference in the lives of men, women and families who are truly struggling in our community,” said Darrin Fodor, Evening of Hope chair. “We share a commitment with the many businesses and individuals who support Evening of Hope that no one in our community should be hungry, that everyone in our community should have supportive relationships, hope for the future and a place to call home.”
