Hope Hall’s Gala a Big Success!

The Annual Toast for Hope Gala, celebrating the 60’s, was held on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Monroe Golf Club, and netted just over $220,000.00 for our school. Mrs. Maureen McGuire, News 8 Anchor at 5,6, and 11 was our emcee and Mr. Chris D’Orso, Associate Director of Admissions at the College at Brockport was our auctioneer. Maureen and Chris took our students right into their hearts and provided our guests with great energy and laughs. Mr. Robert August was our honored guest of the night. Save the Date for next year’s special 25th Anniversary Gala! Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Oak Hill Country Club.

A special small group of friends collectively raised $70,000.00 which was a “Call from the Heart” match challenge for scholarships. This group consisted of:

Cooper/Haims Advisors, LLC                                                 The Mark and Marcia Siewert Family Fund

Dick and Carol Crossed                                                             The Rochester Automobile Dealers’ Association

Cathy D’Amico                                                                            Jeffrey and Kelly Waterstredt

Larry and Nancy Peckham                                                       Scott and Melissa Waterstredt

Elizabeth Sperandio and Richard Arsenault                        An Anonymous donor

The Cornell/Weinstein Family Foundation

Their generous match challenge was exceeded by Gala attendees who responded to the “Call from the Heart” with an amazing $102,000.00.

Hope Hall would also like to thank all the generous Gala Sponsors this year!
