26 Feb Celebration of Hope Gala 2015
The March Forth With Hope Foundation is having their Annual March Forth With Hope Gala on March 7th. The foundation provides financial assistance to families battling cancer or other life-threatening diseases. March Forth With Hope was Foundation was established by Stuart and Shelby Stout in memory of their daughter, Hope Stout, shortly after she lost her courageous fight with bone cancer. This year’s Gala theme is James Bond 007. We are very excited to be able to attend this wonderful event for yet another year.
Many people in the Charlotte area were truly inspired by Hope and her story. Hope raised over $1MM to grant the wishes of 155 kids on the waiting list to receive help as she was losing her battle with cancer. Make a Wish Foundation visited Hope in 2003 and she told them exactly what she wanted. To make this dream come true it would cost nearly $1MM. Her unselfish and caring ways truly showed how courageous she was. Support from the community kept pouring in with donations and local news and radio stations interviewed Hope about her captivating story. We are very blessed to have the March Forth With Hope Foundation as one of our nonprofit partners. Check out the March Forth With Hope Foundation to read Hope Stout’s Incredible story.
