The Chattahoochee Plantation Women’s Club (CPWC) presented “Noche de Esperanza” Night of Hope benefiting Camp Hope and Kidz2Leaders at The Atlanta Country Club on February 9, 2019. The colorful Spanish-inspired evening featured a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception, special entertainment by flamenco artists and classical guitarists, live and silent auctions, followed by dinner and dancing with music by the popular Papa-Sol Band.
Kidz2Leaders is a local children’s charity committed to ending generational incarceration. They provide stability and opportunity for the children of inmates to break the cycle of incarceration, with a 99% success rate among children that graduate from their program. Camp Hope is a week-long, overnight summer camp that empowers children with the chance to build community, experience new opportunities, and find hope for their future.
“We were thrilled to raise $37,000 for Kidz2Leaders at our Night of Hope event. We sincerely appreciate our generous sponsors and amazing charity committee for a festive evening of wonderful food, dancing and celebrating,” said co-Chairs Missy Malmberg and Heather Rees.
The CPWC is grateful to all the volunteers willing to donate their time and resources to make a difference in our community. For contributions, please visit www.auctria.com/auction/nightofhope2019
