HOPE & OLIVE INC PRESENTS OUR ANNUAL

GROVE GALA FUNDRAISER

2023 DATE: Friday, September 15th, 2023

What is the Grove Gala?

The Hope & Olive Grove Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year! It is a formal event (black tie suggested) and pre-purchased tickets are required at the door. Tickets can be purchased individually or as a full table sponsorship.

Although we change some things up each year, we do keep the main details fairly consistent with the gala; there will always be food, a cash bar, speakers, a silent auction, music and FUN! We also present the Macey Vallo Community Impact Award at our Gala.

Hope & Olive Grove Gala

What do you do with funds raised at the Gala?

The funds raised at our Grove Gala cover the costs for our recipients to receive two restorative permanent makeup services at no cost (their initial appointment as well as a touch up). Each recipient is allowed one service in the areas of eyebrows, eyeliner, lip blushing, or NAC Restoration (Nipple/Areola Complex). Hope & Olive has a network of artists to help our recipients in various parts of the country, so the available services can vary from artist to artist. The funds we raise help cover the supply cost for our artist to provide the service, as well as a flat rate for their service. Although not required, many of our artists choose to donate a portion or all of their reimbursement from Hope & Olive right back into our mission.

$20,901.41 was Raised at our 2022 Grove Gala!

How can I support the Grove Gala?

There are a variety of ways in which you can support our Grove Gala! With Hope & Olive being a 501(c)3 organization, the below donations are tax deductible!

Table Sponsorships

Table sponsorships are available, ranging from 4-10 attendees and $500 to $5000! Our attendees love getting all gussied up for a night out with friends, family and coworkers! Sponsors also receive recognition on our social media outlets, our website, on our gala programs, as well as on a visual display depending on sponsorship level.

Individual Tickets

If a full table sponsorship is not for you, we would still love your support with an individual ticket! Come with a friend, family member, spouse… whatever works for you!

Specific Needs Donation

We are always looking for businesses or individuals to support our gala with goods or services! Below is a general list of what we look for each year:

  • Table linens
  • Table decor (centerpieces and/or flowers or greenery)
  • Printing (programs)
  • Music
  • Silent Auction items
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • DJ/band
  • Invitations
  • Open donation (to be used for any gala expenses)

Setup/Cleanup Volunteers

Getting all of the Grove Gala details in order before guests arrive requires some helping hands! Setup is typically about 3 hours before the event, so if you are able to help us with setting up for some or all of it, we would be very grateful! Likewise, we could always use extra help in cleaning up at the end of the night. Cleanup typically goes pretty fast, so if you have about 30-45 minutes to spare before leaving the gala, let us know!

If you are interested in supporting our next gala in any of the above areas, please email our Fundraising Director, Sarah using our Volunteer Form.
