Recapping the Inaugural Golden Gala

On Saturday, September 16, we hosted an unforgettable evening of philanthropy and celebration at the Chris Hope Foundation & Swain Wealth Partners Golden Gala! Let’s just say… we’re already planning for next year!

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 and to AutoNation Ford Wolfchase for donating vehicles for display! They were a huge hit. Jeff Morris of Morris Realty & Auction made the live auction exciting and engaging. And congratulations to the winners who went home with some great items!

In one of the most special parts of the evening, Tyler Watkins was named the 2023 Giving Hope Scholarship recipient.

Every smile, every hand held, every burden lifted and every wish granted is an act of love from our neighbors, community partners and people just like you. Thank you to our Golden Gala sponsors: Swain Wealth Partners, Honest Monument Company, Teamsters Local Union Number 667, Signs First of Desoto, AutoNation Ford Wolfchase, Family Leisure, Grind City Brewing Company, BankTennessee, Wilson Public Relations, and Rae Creative.
