Valentine’s Party with a Purpose
We at HOT are extremely grateful to everyone who participated in and contributed to our signature event for 2023. A fun time was had by all who attended our Party with a Purpose on February 14th.
After all the expenses were, paid we raised over $81,000. The money will be used to fund our 2023 Sugar Plum Fairies program. Our goal is to bring a magical Christmas to more than 200 children across the West Valley of Phoenix. We plan to spend nearly $400 per child and this event helped us to raise most of what we need.
Thank you to the dedicated volunteers who worked to secure sponsors, organize the auction, work with the venue, make decorations, put together prizes, and communicate out to participants. And kudos to everyone who helped to set up and run the event! They say “it takes a village”, and we are blessed to have so many volunteers that love helping!
Wow! From the delicious passed appetizers, to the beautifully decorated ballroom and delicious dinner, to a fun evening of casino games and dancing with DJ Mock, our guests raved about the event! And what fun it was watching our party goers race for their desserts after raising donations at their tables during the Dessert Dash!
A BIG thank you to our sponsors, without whom this event wouldn’t be possible. We are extremely grateful to each of them, and appreciate their support of HOT’s mission; to bring people together to provide help and hope for struggling children and families in the West Valley.
Thank you to everyone that contributed to the event! From bidding for online auction items, raising their paddles during the live auction and Paddle with a Purpose, donating to the Dessert Dash, and gambling in the Casino games, together we raised enough money to give over 200 children a magical Christmas this year.
