05 Mar Spivey Insurance Partner of the Month: March Forth with Hope
Spivey Insurance Group likes to recognize one our clients each month and feature them as the partner of the month. This March, we would like to recognize the non-profit March Forth with Hope Foundation.
The Foundation was established by Stuart and Shelby Stout in memory of their daughter, Hope Stout, shortly after she lost her courageous fight with cancer.
In November 2003 the Make-A-Wish Foundation visited Hope Stout a precocious 12 year old who was suffering from a rare bone cancer. They told Hope she could have anything she wanted; to just name it. She was so blessed with her life experiences, she chose to make sure the other 155 children receive their wishes as soon as possible.
The story of Hope’s battle, and the compassion and caring she showed towards others until her death, sparked an unprecedented outpouring of support from her community. When given the opportunity to have almost any wish fulfilled by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hope’s wish was that the other 155 Wish kids would be granted their wishes. The story of Hope’s life and her wish captured the Charlotte-areas hearts and the legacy of her wish continues still today.
The celebration of Hope Gala is March 24th, 2018. This is a benefit for The March Forth With Hope Foundation. The attire is black tie and has a tropical flair. There will be a cocktail reception, dinner, auction, and dancing. The location is The Ballantyne Hotel.
