Homeless to Hopeful Event

I would like to start this post off by saying that I absolutely love the name of this event. If we ever expect to help people overcome hardships, not only do we have to provide a helping hand but we absolutely have to establish a system that will assist them in reclaiming independence and building a new life.

This off-season we were fortunate enough to be able to do a little volunteer work at the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky. I was more than impressed with the dedication of the staff, the way the shelter is run as well as what it offers residents. While we sadly wont be able to attend this event as we will still be in Arizona for spring training, I am asking you guys to check it out, spread the word, attend if it strikes a chord in your heart or even make a donation if you would like to.

Homeless to Hopeful is an event to raise awareness about homelessness and it is taking place on Friday, February 28th from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Notre Dame Academy Theater.

Following is the official press release for the 2nd Annual Homeless to Hopeful Event:

 This winter has proven to be a challenge for all of us, but especially for those who are homeless.  The Emergency Shelter of NKY has sheltered already this winter close to 400 adults and Family Promise of NKY that sheltered family was full every night.  Local statistics within the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky, indicate an overall 18% increase in homelessness.  ESNKY is also searching for a new home to ensure that we continue have the one and only cold weather shelter in our region. 

 The 2nd annual Homeless to Hopeful event will raise awareness of homelessness in our own NKY community.  Videos with real testimony as well as live speakers will be a part of the event.  Jessica Noll, from WPCO will act as emcee.  The event will also feature basket raffles and a silent auction to raise funds for both Family Promise and the Emergency Shelter of NKY.  Mat Latos has provided a signed jersey and baseball.  Wine baskets, round trip airline tickets and other themed baskets will be available.

  Tickets:  $15.00 for adults    $5.00 for students (college/high school/grade school)

 To purchase tickets:  Call Janet at Family Promise 859-431-6840


Thank you for taking the time to read about a cause that is very important to us! A little bird told me that you might find some items autographed by Mat in the silent auction…

    The Breville BJE510XL is chiefly made of three main pieces
    that can be put together with remarkably little effort.
    All of the parts are easily removed and are made of an easy-to-clean material.

    Fruits with high amount of citric acid should be consumed in moderation.

    Most of the bleaching creams contain Hydroquinone, which may cause leukemia, kidney damage or thyroid disorders.
    The lemon extract bleaching agent will reverse the tan within no time, and give you the much
    desired complexion. Before picking a whitening cream from
    market, it is suggested to evaluate your skin type for attaining good results.

    Inside your private Caribbean beach villa, you can kick up
    your heels and relax in the plush surroundings. Compared to most other masticating juicers on the market today, this machine has superb looks.
    The number of expected wedding guests must also be kept in mind including the proportion between relatives and friends.
