Giving Hope Network (GHN), a charity that supports Youth Advocacy and Autism, invites the community to attend “A Taste of GHN” on Saturday, March 25 at Hotel Du Village in New Hope. The 7th annual event will allow individuals to network with GHN’s leaders, business owners, and Board members to learn more about GHN’s programs for Orphans, Youth, Foster Care, and Autism in PA, NJ and NY. Attendees will learn about the many ways they can become involved with the charity, and join with others to collectively make a difference and help transform lives.
The event will feature a cocktail reception, a sit-down dinner, live music, a live auction, a silent auction, a basket raffle and cause & program education. Tickets are limited and may be obtained by visiting the GHN website at www.givinghopenetwork.org, or by calling 855-HOPENET. Tickets are $175 per person.
Network members participate in many activities, including: internship creation for low-income youth, job creation & planning for children with Autism, technology implementation for autism schools, suitcase stuffing parties for children in foster care, golf event staffing, product donation solicitations, fundraiser creation, partner & donor linking, and newsletter writing.
GHN is unique, as 100% of every donation is allocated directly to the intended charitable cause. This is possible because the Board collectively pays 100% of all administrative costs. Says Tom Rosella, GHN founder and Chairperson, “The idea that 100% of all donations go to the directed cause is a large aspect of why many Board members joined the organization, and why they are so passionate about the work that is being done.”
GHN members and volunteers are executives, business owners, and retirees who are very established in their careers. GHN is an outlet for them to bring their significant business experience together to help support those in need. The network is passionate about the real, measurable difference GHN makes and is extremely touched to see the impact of their time, talent, and fundraising. Says Marjorie Chertok, a GHN Board of Trustees member and resident of Bucks County, “It is truly about the people we serve with, and the people whose lives we touch. The spirit of the Board and the members of the organization is what keeps you going and what makes you want to do more.”
GHN’s partners include: Cancer Support Community Center – Central NJ, CASA, Celebrate the Children, Division of Child Protection & Permanency, Eden II, Eleos International Youth Ministries, Hagedorn Little Village School, MillHill Foundation, Sanctuary Orphanage, South African Evangelistic Mission, Spectrum 360, and Trenton Area Stakeholders.
