Recapping 2023, Looking Ahead to 2024

In September 2023, we hosted an unforgettable evening of philanthropy and celebration at the inaugural Chris Hope Foundation & Swain Wealth Partners Golden Gala!

Every part of this beautiful event directly powered our mission of supporting families in their child’s fight against life-threatening illnesses. Thank you to The Kent for being such a wonderful host venue in our first year. 2024 will be #NEXTLEVEL!

Thank you!

To all guests and sponsors who made the 2023 Golden Gala benefiting the Chris Hope Foundation a success, we are so grateful for your support of our mission.

All funds raised from the evening will advance the Chris Hope Foundation mission and fuel its investment in supporting families of children receiving medical care in the Mid-South.

A special thank you to our host sponsors, Swain Wealth Partners.

Honest Monument Co. exhibited deep generosity as our platinum sponsor. We are so grateful for their collaboration.

Happy Hearts

The Happy Hearts program was born out of our desire to bring final wishes to pediatric patients in hospice or end-of-life care. Through Happy Hearts, we grant a wide array of requests, which may range from a custom shirt to a family gathering or outing. In partnership with Le Bonheur, we also give a mini-shopping spree to one patient a month in our “Kid of the Month” initiative.

Giving Hope Scholarship

The diagnosis of childhood cancer changes the trajectory of patients’ futures even several years after treatment concludes and they enter remission.

We have seen teen patients lose scholarships they thought they could count on due to factors beyond their control, such as a late start after treatment. Some teens who beat their illness are still left with little to no funds to achieve their post-secondary education.

In 2018, we created the annual Giving Hope Scholarship fund to help teens who have had or are currently battling pediatric cancer.

CHF Cares

The Chris Hope Foundation’s CHF Cares is a group dedicated to raising funds for sick children and the hospitals that serve them. The team is made up of over 100 members from all corners of the country and we are always welcoming others to join us. CHF Cares proudly averages $110,000 each year through fundraising events and engaging campaigns. These dedicated crusaders also participate in races benefiting the cause throughout the year, all in the name of raising awareness of pediatric cancer and finding a cure.

Run the St. Jude race with CHF Cares! When you register for the St. Jude Marathon, Half-Marathon, or 5K, search for CHF Cares in the team list.
